Endellion String Quartet
The evangelist St. Endellion lived as a hermit in 5th and 6th century Cornwall. Members of the Endellion String Quartet are evangelists, as well . . . but by no stretch of the imagination can they be called reclusive. The renowned ensemble has brought what Leonard Bernstein called "the joy of music" not only to Cambridge University, where it has been Quartet-in-Residence since 1992, but throughout the world on six continents. Audiences, says the Daily Telegraph, are "set ablaze."
