The Maggini Quartet, formed in 1988, is one of the finest British string quartets. Its acclaimed recordings have won international awards including Gramophone Chamber Music Award of the Year, Diapason d’Or of the Year and a Cannes Classical Award, and have twice been nominated for Grammy Awards. The Quartet is commencing a new collaboration with Meridian Records by recording the complete Mendelssohn quartet cycle.

The Maggini Quartet’s commitment to new music has led to important commissions including works by James MacMillan, Robert Simpson, Eleanor Alberga and Roxanna Panufnik. The Quartet’s unique collaboration with Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, performing and recording his ten ‘Naxos Quartets’, has been hailed as “a 21st century landmark”. Their latest commission is a string quartet by Stuart MacRae to celebrate the ensemble’s 25th Anniversary in 2013.

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 and the Netherlands. The Quartet tours in Norway every summer, and will undertake a major tour of Germany in autumn 2013.

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 repertoire which the Quartet is committed to bringing to a worldwide audience. The coming season features Britten and Rawsthorne.

The Maggini Quartet launched its own chamber music festival in May 2012. ‘Magginis in Breckland’ is an annual event based in Norfolk, bringing musicians of the highest calibre to the community, with concerts reflecting the full range of the Maggini’s eclectic repertoire.

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