We present a series of evening concerts featuring classical musicians of world-class calibre, in partnership with City Music Society (CMS). This series celebrates the centenary and genius of Benjamin Britten, and also the 20th anniversary of wind quintet, the Galliard Ensemble.

Haydn Quartet in A Op. 55 No. 1
Britten Quartet No.1 in D Op. 25
Schumann Quartet in A Op.41 No. 3

The Endellion is renowned as one of the finest quartets in the world with regular tours of North and South America and concerts in Australasia, the Far East, the Middle East, South Africa and every West European country. Britten’s vivacious first quartet, written in the Californian sunshine in 1941, contrasts vividly with Schumann’s masterpiece in this genre, filled with musical inventiveness, youthful exuberance and intense poetic feeling.

"The Endellion String Quartet sets the audience ablaze"
