BEETHOVEN – String Quartet Op.135
BRAHMS – String Sextet No.1 in B flat major

 

Student Guest Violinist – VICTOR SUN
Student Guest Cellist – LAURA VAN DER HEIJDEN

 

For this concert, the Endellions have invited two extraordinarily talented Cambridge students – Victor Sun and Laura Van Der Heijden - to join them for the ravishing String Sextet (two violins, two violas, two cellos) by Brahms.  This Sextet was used as the soundtrack for Louis Malle’s film Les Amants; and the second movement is featured in Star Trek: The Next Generation episode ‘Sarek’, in ‘The Day of the Dead’ an episode of Inspector Morse, and in the film The Piano Teacher.

This will be preceded by Mozart’s delightfully joyous first mature quartet. 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 that Beethoven raised to unparalleled heights in his final years.
