Maggini String Quartet
Haydn: Quartet op 64 no 5 'The Lark'
Rawsthorne: Quartet no 1
Schubert: Quartet in G D887
The Maggini Quartet has long been a favourite of Oxford audiences and continues to be much admired by chamber music playing enthusiasts. In addition to two great classical masterpieces they bring a work drawn from the English quartet repertoire that the Maggini have very much made their own.
Schubert's late G major Quartet is a work of symphonic scale and expression, a masterpiece. Rawsthorne's Quartet no. 1 is cast as a concise theme and variations and Haydn's 'Lark' Quartet has been so named from the soaring violin theme with which it opens.
