The Endellion String Quartet perform the chamber music of John Foulds, a highly-regarded exploration of one of the lesser-known genres of the composer’s oeuvre. His compositions are varied in style, some drawing upon the late Romantic tradition and others reflecting his interest in the music of the Orient – Hindu ragas, non-diatonic scales and Greek modes for example. Foulds wrote for string quartet throughout his life, completing nine quartets (of which only three are known to still exist): the two quartets chosen for this recording date from his later period and the suite, Aquarelles, is relatively early.

    ‘Foulds’s sheer versatility is remarkable, and the Endellion Quartet’s fine performances convey just that.’ Gramophone
