About the Endymion Quintet

“The brilliant Endymion” (Sunday Times) exists to deliver world-class performances of chamber music throughout the UK and abroad. It nurtures the UK’s most dynamic and original composers, inspires younger and new audiences and champions mixed chamber music of all genres through performance, commissioning, recording and promotion. Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019, Endymion has been called one of the few chamber groups as much at home with Mozart as with Birtwistle.

Endymion has appeared at most of the major British festivals, giving its tenth Proms performance in 2014, and was in residence at Blackheath Concert Halls for several years.

Endymion celebrated both its 30th and 35th birthdays at Kings Place. The 30th birthday commissions were recorded for NMC and joined a host of other discs by Endymion including works by Lutyens, Stravinsky, Britten and Magnus Lindberg.
