Michael Endres

One of the United States’ most accomplished and exciting young ensembles joins outstanding German pianist Michael Endres for the final Chamber Music New Zealand concert of the 2012 season.

With a 2010 Grammy nomination for “Best Chamber Music Performance” for their recording of Ginastera Quartets, the Enso String Quartet has quickly made their mark on the international chamber music scene. Their cellist is Christchurch-born Richard Belcher.

Michael Endres joins the ensemble for Shostakovich and Dvořak Quintets. Recently appointed Head of Piano Studies at the University of Canterbury, Michael is a pianist of international standing with an extensive and prizewinning discography.

In Napier, Argentinian composer Ginastera’s Second String Quartet, which is paired with Boccherini’s delicate Quartet in G minor, followed by Dvořák’s Piano Quintet, infused with warmth, lyricism, and the flavours of Eastern Europe. The concert will also feature a new CMNZ Commission for Enso String Quartet.
