The Complete Alwyn String Quartets

January 27, 2008

The Maggini Quartet recorded William Alwyn’s complete string quartets, together with Novelette, composed for the same forces. Much of Alwyn’s music is still often overlooked. Quartet No.1 (1953) dates from the same period as his rapturous Autumn Legend, his Quartet No. 2 originates from 1975, while Quartet No. 3, his last composition, is from 1983. Britain’s multi-award-winning Maggini Quartet, celebrating this year its 20th anniversary, has an outstanding discography on the Naxos label of British music from Arnold to Vaughan Williams.

Sessions took place from December 9 to 11 at Potton Hall, Suffolk, UK. The producer-engineer was Andrew Walton of K&A Productions.
