- The Endellion String Quartet
The Endellion String Quartet opens with Haydn’s ‘Sunrise’, among the composer’s greatest works, before exploring the creative world of Tippett’s Second String Quartet, with its melancholy slow movement inspired by the threat of war.
The programme concludes with the surging energy of Brahms’s First String Quartet.
