Description

The Maggini String Quartet returns to the series with another of its characteristic programmes, mixing the glories of the Austro-German Classical repertoire with a neglected British masterpiece of the Twentieth Century: Bax’s First Quartet. Stephen Johnson reviewed the recording of the work by the Maggini Quartet as “fresh, enthusiastic and very accomplished performance [which] shows it’s worth more than an occasional revival. Likeable, direct and unusually tuneful, it manages to salute Dvorák, Elgar, Ravel and Irish folksong without ever sounding derivative or in any other way unsure of itself.”

Joseph Haydn (1732 - 1809) String quartet in E flat Op. 20 No.1

Arnold Bax (1883 - 1953) String quartet No. 1 in G (1918)

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) String Quartet No. 11 in F minor Op. 95 "Serioso"
