Notes & Reviews:

Peter Maxwell Davies is universally acknowledged as one of the foremost composers of our time, and is currently Master of the Queen's Music. The New York Times has described his musical idiom as a combination of 'medieval mysticism, modernist rigour and happy accessibility'. This fifth and final installment of Maxwell Davies' 10-quartet cycle commissioned by Naxos opens with 'Quartet No. 9', dedicated to Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw, mathematician extraordinary, and sometime Lord Mayor of Manchester, both of which attributes have influenced the content of the work.

International Record Review
I have found listening to these ten quartets an absorbing experience, at the end of which I can only suggest that listeners explore them for themselves. The performances by the musicians for whom they were written and coached by the composer, are exemplary...
