Artist Description: 

"The brilliant Endymion" (Sunday Times) was formed in 1979 from a group of outstanding National Youth Orchestra students; since then it has built a secure reputation across a broad and adventurous repertoire, and won a strong following among audiences throughout the UK and abroad. Unusually for a chamber group so well established, Endymion retains most of its original players; these performers now number among the best soloists and chamber musicians in Europe, and Endymion has been described as one of the few chamber groups as at home with Mozart as with Birtwistle. 

Education occupies a central place in Endymion's activities. In addition to the 2009 Sound Census workshops with secondary and primary school children in central London, in 2003-04 it organised the Rising Generation festival at the Southbank Centre, featuring music by thirty young composers.  For five years Endymion played a central part in the BBC Proms Guardian Young Composer of the Year competition, and it has also taken part in several projects with SPNM.
