1st Prize winner and Audience Prize winner at the Trondheim (Norway)International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, the Maxwell Quartet has been hailed for “great communication” by The Strad Magazine and as “brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating” by The Scottish Herald.
The Maxwell Quartet is now firmly regarded as one of Britain’s finest 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.
“The Maxwells played with verve and confidence. Each movement – from the arresting opening five fortissimo chords to the exuberant energy of the final Vivace, the Quartet played with wit and passion. the Maxwell Quartet’s energetic but precise rendition . . . had the audience stamping their feet, and
applauding not one but multiple encores.”
