1st Prizewinner and Audience Prizewinner at the 9th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, and hailed as “brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating” by The Scottish Herald, 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. Performing to sold out venues in New York, Florida, California and Washington its debut tour of the USA in January 2019 garnered critical acclaim from the New York Times“eloquent performers who bring the same sense of charisma and sense of adventure to their programming.”
A rare chance to hear the “peculiarly Russian Romantic introspection” of Prokofiev’s 1stQuartet.
This concert is generously supported by Frances Yorke in memory of her husband, the Very Revd Michael Yorke, who died on the 19th April 2019.
