I was privileged to see the Endellion Quartet in Colchester yesterday evening, including 3.5 exquisite minutes of one of my favourite composers, Anton Webern. (Bagatelles Op. 9)
I also enjoyed a Beethoven early Op. 18 quartet that was acoustically real-timed into new life after my familiarity with it over the years. Plus what my wife has always called, for some reason, the Basmati Rice Mozart SQ (K421). The pizzicato passages were brought up with a new faery shine. I can’t recall hearing Tchaikovsky SQ No. 3 before (T is not usually a favourite composer of mine but I do enjoy his Chamber Music), and it was enormous fun getting into it with this performance, especially the roundelay of Movement Two.
