Scottish folk music
Beethoven. String Quartet no.10 in E flat op.74 (Harp)
First Prizewinner and Audience Prizewinner at the 9th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, and hailed as “brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating” by The Scottish Herald, and "superb storytelling by four great communicators" by The Strad Magazine, the Maxwell Quartet is now firmly regarded as one of Britain's finest young string quartets, with a strong connection to their folk music heritage and a commitment to bringing together wide-ranging projects and programmes to expand the string quartet repertoire.
The quartet performs 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.
On his death, Joe Stirling left a generous legacy to Norfolk & Norwich Music Club (now Norwich Chamber Music), in appreciation of the great pleasure he had gained from his membership and the concerts it has organised.
It was his wish that the legacy be used to provide an annual concert offering free admission to current members, his family and students. Members are invited to make a voluntary contribution to extend the duration of the fund for future concerts (or at the Trustees' discretion, the musical education of young people).
