MAGGINI QUARTET

Formed in 1988, the Maggini Quartet is one of the finest British string quartets. Its acclaimed recordings have won prestigious international awards including a Gramophone magazine Chamber Music Award of the Year, a Diapason d’Or of the Year, a Le Monde de Music CHOC award and a Cannes Classical Award. Two recordings were chosen as a Gramophone magazine ‘Disc of the Month’, and many more have been Editor’s Choices in Gramophone magazine and BBC Music Magazine. The Magginis have also twice been nominated for GRAMMY Awards.

The Maggini Quartet’s commitment to new music has led to a variety of important commissions including works by James MacMillan, Robert Simpson, Eleanor Alberga and Roxanna Panufnik. Their unique collaboration with Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, working with the composer over six years performing and recording his ten Naxos Quartets, was hailed as ‘a 21st-century landmark’.

The Maggini Quartet appears frequently in prestigious concert series at home and abroad and makes regular media broadcasts. Recent international visits have included Dubai, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Denmark. They make twice-yearly visits to Norway for concerts and coaching activities.

The Magginis are renowned for their interpretations of British repertoire and the Glory of the English String Quartet continues to be an important ongoing initiative, drawing upon the wonderful and distinctive repertoire which the Quartet is committed to bringing to a worldwide audiences through concert performances and recordings.

In addition to their concert activity, the members of the Quartet have an international reputation as chamber music coaches. They hold several UK residencies and have worked at the UK’s senior music institutions.
