International Record Review, January 2012

strong and very well-written String Trio of 1931, this is an eminently recommended CD… © 2012 International Record Review

Penguin Guide, January 2009

The String Quartet in A minor (1921) has a certain pastoral quality, with Irish echoes in the dance rhythms and ending on a flamboyant Rondo. The String Trio of 1931, beautifully written with no feeling of thinness, is even subtler, with the pastoral idiom more equivocal in its tonal shiftings. The Naxos CD also offers something of a discovery in the form of an earlier Quartet in E flat. Although it is not a masterpiece, there are some quite inspired things in it and the Maggini play throughout with great dedication and commitment. The recording is very lifelike and present. A first-class bargain.

"I do urge you to investigate this enterprising, hugely enjoyable collection"


"Exsultate, jubilate! Naxos and the Maggini String Quartet here present us with excellent idiomatic performances of three fine works...I will be on the lookout for other recordings by this outstanding group"
