The Endellion String Quartet is one of the finest and most established quartets in the world, and recently celebrated its 35th anniversary. The quartet has toured worldwide, has broadcast numerous times on BBC radio and television and performed several series of concerts at London’s Southbank Centre and Wigmore Hall. It also holds a residency at Cambridge University.
The programme includes all of Schubert’s late string quartets, combined with Haydn, Beethoven and Mendelssohn who are closely related compositionally and historically – Janáček (his ‘Kreutzer’ quartet) and Smetana (Quartet No.1, ‘From my Life’) provide a contrast.
Pre-concert talks are given by Professor Geoffrey Norris, broadcaster for BBC Radio 3 and former Chief Critic for The Daily Telegraph. He lectured at Royal Northern College of Music 1977–83 and is Emeritus Professor at the Rachmaninoff Music Academy in Russia.
The price for the weekend package covers almost everything, from the concerts themselves to interval drinks, via luxurious accommodation, extravagant afternoon teas and memorable dinners. Even gratuities for hotel staff are included.
