The Quartet has just returned from recording its debut CD on Linn Records, which is to feature string quartets by Haydn alongside their own compositions based on Scottish folk music, drawing comparison between the nature of the two styles. The quartet recorded their CD at Menuhin Hall, Surrey, with Linn producer Philip Hobbs. The CD is due for release in March 2019.
1st Prizewinner and Audience Prizewinner at the 9th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, with performances hailed as “superb storytelling by four great communicators" by the Strad Magazine, the Maxwell Quartet is now firmly regarded as one of Britain's finest young string quartets, with a strong connection to their folk music heritage and a commitment to bringing together wide-ranging projects and programmes to expand the string quartet repertoire. read more >
