RUBBRA, E.: String Quartets Nos. 1, 3 and 4 (Maggini Quartet)

The Maggini Quartet’s Naxos recording of Edmund Rubbra’s String Quartet No. 2 (8.572286) was praised as ‘superbly integrated…undeniably a great success’ by Gramophone. His remaining three string quartets, heard here, mark Rubbra as a great, though still undervalued, English composer whose music boasts an inexhaustible sense of freshness, a richly hued emotional palette and an abiding sense of optimism. The Maggini Quartet’s Naxos recordings of English string quartets by composers from Alwyn to Walton have gained numerous awards, critical plaudits and nominations from Gramophone, Diapason and the Grammys.
