Endellion Quartet - Saturday 9th March, 7pm, St. John's Hall, Penzance
The Endellion String Quartet have had associations with Cornwall for all of the quartet’s 40 years – through the quartet’s Cornish saint’s name and a long association with the International Musicians Seminars at Prussia Cove. Concerts Penzance are delighted that the quartet are making a special trip to West Cornwall during their 40th Anniversary year – to perform at St. John’s Hall at 7pm on Saturday 9th March.
When the Endellions had been around for a mere 25 years, cellist David Waterman wrote an eloquent article about their time together (http://endellionquartet.com/after-25-years-dw) in which he attributes their long successful career to ‘the glorious miracle of the vast panorama of great masterpieces that is the quartet repertoire’. For their concert in Penzance the quartet have chosen 3 of the greatest of those works – Haydn op.74 no.3 ‘The Rider’, Bartok no. 2 op.17 and Beethoven op.131.
Join with us to celebrate this remarkable quartet’s illustrious career and enjoy top quality music making in the heart of Penzance.
