Formed in 1979, the Endellion String Quartet is renowned as one of the finest quartets in the world. Over the years, its schedule has included regular tours of North and South America and concerts in Australasia, the Far East, the Middle East, South Africa and every West European country. Everywhere, the Endellion String Quartet "sets the audience ablaze" (Daily Telegraph) and "captivates concertgoers with a remarkable rapport, playing to each other with a sense almost of discovery, communicating to the audience on a level of unusual intimacy" (The Guardian).
 
In Britain, the Endellion String Quartet has appeared at nearly all of the major series and festivals and is regularly broadcast on BBC radio and television. In 1996 the quartet were winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Best Chamber Ensemble. Its various recordings have been named Chamber Music Recording of the Year by both the Daily Telegraph and The Guardian, Radio 3’s Critics’ Choice and Editor’s Choice at the Gramophone Awards.
 
The Endellion String Quartet has been Quartet in Residence at Cambridge University since 1992 and has undertaken three short-term residencies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the USA. Since 2001 it has been Associate Quartet of the Royal Northern College of Music and in 2003 began its Residency here at The Venue, Leeds.
