Endellion String Quartet

Andrew Watkinson & Ralph de Souza Violins, Garfield Jackson Viola, David Waterman Cello

‘Quartet in Residence’, University of Cambridge

The Endellion String Quartet is in its 41st t season (2019-20) — which is to be its final one — and is renowned as one of the finest quartets in the world. It was founded in 1979 and three of the original players continue to be members. Ralph de Souza joined them in 1986. As Gramophone   Magazine stated:  ‘There’s always a feeling when listening to the Endellion String Quartet that you’re listening to the Urtext method of quartet playing. Maybe 35 years of playing together has brought to them as a group a uniformity of thought and instinct that allows them to play as a single entity.’
