1st Prize and Audience Prize winner at the Trondheim (Norway) International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, the Maxwell Quartet has been hailed for "great communication" by The Strad Magazine and as "brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating" by The Scottish Herald. The Glasgow-based ensemble is now firmly established as one of Britain’s finest string quartets, with a strong connection to their folk music heritage and a commitment to bringing together wide-ranging projects and programs to expand the string quartet repertoire.
