The Maxwell Quartet

Colin Scobie & George Smith Violin | Elliott Perks Viola | Duncan Strachan Cello

Haydn

String Quartet in G minor, Op. 74 No. 3 ‘Rider’

Beethoven

String Quartet in E flat, Op. 74 ‘Harp’

Haydn’s Op. 74 quartets were composed in 1793, shortly after he had returned to Vienna from London, and the set of six are characterised by striking variations in dynamics and increasing virtuosity. Beethoven’s wonderful Op.74 quartet, which owes its nickname to a harp-like musical figure in the opening movement, finds the composer in his most relaxed mood.

…remarkable joy and energy [from] these Scottish musicians, ideal interpreters of Haydn’s mischievous jokes, sudden mood swings and lyrical ingenuity.” The Times
