The Maxwell Quartet is well loved by Kettle’s Yard audiences having given performances here at both The Jim and Helen Ede Concert and The Max and Evelyn Forbes Concert in 2019. The group plays regularly across the UK and abroad at venues including London’s Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, and St Martin-in-the-Fields, with performances through the Park Lane Young Artist Programme, the Tunnell Trust Awards Scheme, and the Kirckman Concert Society programme.
The Quartet comprises four close friends who grew up playing folk and classical music together in youth orchestras and music schools across Scotland. Its founding members met in 2010 as postgraduate students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where the group was selected as its Young Artists in Residence the following year. The Quartet was also named as Residency Artists for Enterprise Music Scotland 2011-2013 and gave several acclaimed concert tours over the two-year tenure. Performing widely across Scotland, the Quartet has established a reputation for delighting audiences with its “unaffected enthusiasm” (North Highland Times) and its “panache and conviction” (Strathearn Herald). The Maxwells have held residencies at Oxford University, Perth Concert Hall and many chamber music festivals across the UK including their own festival, Loch Shiel, in the west highlands of Scotland.
The Quartet’s members perform on fine instruments generously loaned from the Harrison Frank Foundation.
