Endellion String Quartet

Mozart String Quartet K.458 in B-flat major The Hunt
Tippett String Quartet No. 2
Beethoven String Quartet, Op. 131 in C-sharp minor

Mozart’s Hunt quartet gets its name from the opening tune, but it also contains a glorious slow movement and a brilliantly operatic finale. In his second quartet Tippett looked back to the first glorious age of English music with a strongly contrapuntal work, which  includes a heartrending Passacaglia worthy of Purcell. For many (including the composer himself) Beethoven's Op. 131 is his greatest quartet – certainly the one in the most awkward key!
