Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...The Endellion Quartet cover the whole classic range from Haydn to Bartók, with liberal representation of recent and new works, with equal stylishness, energy, accomplishment: no eccentricities...a mainstream/bread-of-life presentation, obtruding nothing between the music and its realization."

Robin Holloway, The Spectator, 2009

"...This British ensemble play with a really extraordinary communication and enthusiasm and obtained a heartfelt ovation."

- El Periodico, Barcelona, 2006
