The Maxwell Quartet

The Maxwell Quartet combines a refined approach to classical works with a passion for its own folk heritage and a commitment to expanding the string quartet repertoire through wide-ranging projects. Its first two releases on Linn Records paired string quartets by Haydn with the players’ own compositions, based on Scottish folk music, the first reaching number three in the classical specialist charts. The quartet performs at UK venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room, Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, and Perth Concert Hall, and across Europe, including at Tivoli Copenhagen, Muziekgebouw Amsterdam, and the Rheingau, Just Classik, Wonderfeel, Lammermuir, and St Magnus Festivals. Since their debut American tour in 2019, which sold out venues in New York, Florida, California and Washington, they have toured the US annually.

HAYDN: String Quartet in E flat Op 20/1
