MAXWELL DAVIES, P.: Naxos Quartets Nos. 1 and 2 (Maggini Quartet)

Peter Maxwell Davies is universally acknowledged as one of the foremost composers of our time, and is currently Master of the Queen’s Music. Plainchant, musical tradition and the haunting landscape of his adopted Orkney Islands all serve as inspiration to Maxwell Davies’ extraordinary and fecund imagination. This CD launches a remarkable and possibly unique commission from Naxos for ten String Quartets, each to be premièred live and subsequently recorded by the Maggini Quartet.
