"Four young men in the prime of life, playing with absolute conviction"

Strathearn Herald

 

Hailed as “brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating” (The Herald) , the Maxwell Quartet is rapidly establishing itself as a dynamic and exciting force in the chamber music world. Formed in 2010, the quartet now performs regularly across the UK and abroad, at venues including London’s Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, and St Martin-in-the-Fields, with tours in Europe and further afield. Currently on the Park Lane Young Artist Programme, and the Tunnell Trust Awards Scheme, the quartet has held residencies at Enterprise Music Scotland, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, St Anne’s College Oxford and at many festivals across the UK. read more >
