  • The Endellion String Quartet

Haydn’s Op. 54 No. 2 contains a most extraordinary slow movement inspired by melismatic, improvised gypsy violin music. Webern’s extremely affecting short pieces, meanwhile, compress the emotions of a symphony into a few minutes, whereas Mozart’s K575 is hallmarked by its expansive melodious warmth and relaxation. Wistful, heartfelt beauty, perhaps inspired by Schubert, belongs to Brahms’s A minor String Quartet.
