One of the country’s most distinguished chamber groups, the Endellion Quartet mark their 40th anniversary in 2019. This evening’s recital celebrates the occasion with two premieres: the world premiere of Sally Beamish’s new work, co-commissioned by Turner Sims, (and one of a series of short pieces which the Quartet are presenting in their landmark year); and the UK premiere of Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin’s string quartet. The concert begins with music by the ‘father of the string quartet’, and ends with Tchaikovsky’s popular first work.
Sally Beamish’s work is commissioned by the Endellion String Quartet on the occasion of their 40th anniversary, with generous support from Turner Sims Southampton, Lark Music and Brompton’s.
