  • Maxwell String Quartet. 'Spring'- Haydn + Folk Music

    Price: £20.00

    Haydn and Folk music 

    The Maxwell Quartet is delighted to be presenting the first in a series of curated chamber concerts at Guardswell Farm. 

    The quartet will be preforming works from their debut album, on Linn Records, which is due for release in March 2019 and features their own folk compositions alongside music by Joseph Haydn.

    This beautifully converted farm steading has a special place in the Maxwell Quartet’s hearts - it’s where the group’s violinist, George Smith, got married back in 2017, and the quartet are thrilled to be returning. The venue’s beautiful views, atmospheric spaces and perfect chamber acoustic will combine with the Maxwell Quartet’s unique and acclaimed performance style, making for a very special evening. 

    The evening will start with a welcome drink and nibble, followed by the performance. 

    The Maxwell Quartet, formed in 2010 in Glasgow, is now an internationally prizewinning string quartet, recently hailed by the New York Times as “eloquent performers… they bring the same sense of charisma and adventure to their performing… the sound of traditional fiddle carried over beautifully into fresh readings of Haydn and Beethoven”. 

    * Please be aware that no tickets will be issued for this event- we will have a list at the door *

    Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
