Maxwell String Quartet

26 May @ 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Maxwell String Quartet

Haydn: String Quartet Op 20 No 1 in E flat major

Maxwell Quartet: Worksongs – Folk Music of Scotland

Beethoven: String Quartet in C sharp minor Op 131

The international prize-winning Maxwell String Quartet bring the Bath Festival’s two masterpieces. The Haydn is one of the six Op 20 Sun set which established the string quartet as a transcendent musical form. The Beethoven quartet is one of the most extraordinary musical journeys ever composed. In seven movements and lasting for 40 minutes it has profound depth of emotion and meaning. It was the worthy subject of the film A Late Quartet. The programme is completed with a set of Maxwells’ utterly charming arrangements of Scottish folk songs.
