The Endräkt String Quartet is made up of young, yet very professional, musicians who trained at the Guildhall. As well as being musically highly accomplished, they produce a lovely quartet sound: mellow, resonant, blended and well balanced. They managed too, to capture in their playing of Mozart and Mendelssohn today, that intimate, personal quality that is so important for chamber music and which sets it apart from music making on a larger scale. The second violinist made a very brief introduction to each piece giving a bit of musical background adding further interest to the music played. All in all this recital by Endräkt String Quartet provided a blissful way to spend an hour on a lovely Autumn afternoon in central London.
