Haydn ~ Quartet in B flat Op 71 No 1
Shostakovich ~ Quartet No 7 in F sharp
Beethoven ~ Quartet No 12 in E flat Op 127
This talented young Scottish based quartet is going places. Not only did they win First Prize at the prestigious Trondheim International Trondheim Chamber Music Competition in 2017, but they picked up the Audience Prize at the same time. Their programme opens with the first of a group of quartets by ‘the father of the string quartet’ which were dedicated to a wealthy Viennese music lover, Count Apponyi. It is followed by the short but powerful Quartet No 7 by Shostakovich – written in 1960 and dedicated to his late wife – and concluding with Beethoven’s lyrical Op 127, one of the composer’s late quartets and the work which the Maxwells played in the final of the competition.
