In The Studio: Maxwell Quartet
Following the exceptional success of its debut album the Maxwell Quartet returns with its second recording of Haydn.
The intriguing juxtaposition of Haydn string quartets with traditional Scottish folk music once again forms the basis of the programme. MusicWeb International named Haydn: String Quartets Op. 71 as one of its Recordings of the Year stating: ‘... letting this superb playing simply wash over you has been one of the year’s great pleasures.’
The prize-winning quartet is performing Haydn’s Op. 74 and their selection of folk music will include traditional tunes from the Highlands and Shetland plus music by Niel Gow, Jean Finlayson of Lewis and Isaac Cooper of Banff.
