Get closer to the music with the award-winning Maxwell Quartet, known for the energy and passion they bring to live performances.

Experience the thrill of the chase with Mozart’s Hunt, the impressionist lyricism of Debussy and Death’s haunting beauty in Schubert’s Death and the Maiden, as the Maxwell Quartet musicians guide you through three monuments of String Quartet repertoire.

Our intimate and relaxed in-the-round setting allows you to sit close enough to the musicians to feel their energy, sense their excitement and hear every note.

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.


This performance, had a mystery, delicacy and depth which made you want to hear it again immediately. What an exhilarating start to the year.
Fiona Maddocks, The Observer

The String Quartet in D from his Opus 71 is among the most sophisticated Haydn wrote, with a radical third movement and a sparkling finale, and all of that came through in the beautifully blended sound of the Maxwells.
Keith Bruce, The Herald

"Very fine performances from the Maxwell Quartet... a clear and impassioned reading alive to the score's delicate lyricism and need for control"
Guy Damman, The Guardian
