The Cambridge-Based Endellion String Quartet To Retire After 41 Seasons

The British-based Endellion String Quartet will retire as an ensemble at the conclusion of the current 2020 season

It has been announced this week that the British-based Endellion String Quartet will retire as an ensemble at the conclusion of the current 2020 season.

Comprising violinists Andrew Watkinson and Ralph de Souza, violist Garfield Jackson and cellist David Waterman, the ensemble has performed together since 1979 - and have served as the Cambridge University Quartet-in-Residence since 1992.

"After forty-one years as a string quartet (three of us from the outset, and Ralph, the new boy, in his thirty-fourth year as an Endellion), we have decided that the time has come to hang up our collective quartet bows in the summer of 2020 ..." Cellist David Waterman has this week said.

"For our final season, we have chosen pieces which have a special place in our hearts and that we have lived with for many years … it has been a marvellous journey and we hope our audiences will join us for all four of our final concerts," he has said.

Their Endellion's final performance will be as part of their annual spring residency at Leeds College of Music.
