West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge
‘Resident Quartet’ University of Cambridge
MOZART – String Quartet K.387 (‘Spring’)
BEETHOVEN – String Quartet Op.135
TBC - Quintet with guest student musician
This is the concert in which the Endellions continue their popular tradition of combining with a Cambridge student to play a quintet. This will be preceded by Mozart’s first mature quartet whose miraculous last movement combines a fugal texture with a sonata structure and singing melodies and is delightfully joyous. Beethoven’s final quartet Op.135 has an almost Haydn-esque feel to it and includes an unforgettable slow movement built from variations, a form which Beethoven raised to unparalleled heights in his final years.
Approximately 120 min
