Formed in 1988, The Maggini Quartet is one of the finest contemporary British string quartets. Renowned for their championship of British repertoire, the Maggini’s acclaimed and ongoing contribution to Naxos’ British Music Series has seen the Quartet’s explore the music of Britten, Walton, Davies, Elgar, and Ireland. International awards include the Gramophone Chamber Music CD of the Year in 2001, a Cannes Classical Award in 2002 and a Diapason d’Or of the Year for their Naxos recording of Elgar. They have been nominated twice for Grammy Awards.

The Maggini’s commitment to new music has led to many important commissions, including works by James MacMillan, Robert Simpson, Eleanor Alberga and Roxanna Panufnik. Sir Peter Maxwell Davies has written his ten Naxos Quartets for them, a major five-year collaboration with performances and recordings generating enormous enthusiasm from audiences and critics alike. In 2008, their 20th Anniversary year, the Quartet will give premières of works by Ronald Corp and Roxanna Panufnik.

Explore British quartet music as performed by The Maggini Quartet. Don’t forget the new release BERKELEY: String Quartets Nos. 1-3 (8.570415).

“The foursome plays with convincing relish for the music, with singing tone, and with perfect blend of voicing. Naxos's sound engineering is clear and well sound-staged."
