Beethoven Quartet in C sharp minor, Op.131
A selection of traditional Scottish music

First Prizewinner and Audience Prizewinner at the 9th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, with performances hailed as “superb storytelling by four great communicators" by the Strad Magazine, the Maxwell Quartet is now firmly regarded as one of Britain's finest young string quartets.

Beethoven’s landmark final string quartet – said to be his own favourite – packs a world of light and darkness into its seven continuous sections.  The Maxwells team it with a set of arrangements of Scottish music, reflecting their strong connection to their folk music heritage.

“Brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating” The Scottish Herald
