Notes & Reviews:

Peter Maxwell Davies is universally acknowledged as one of the foremost composers of our time. His musical idiom has been described by The New York Times as a combination of 'medieval mysticism, modernist rigor and happy accessibility'. Maxwell Davies's 10-quartet cycle commissioned by Naxos is now collected in this 5-CD boxed set. 'The Maggini perform with the no-holds-barred commitment and jaw-dropping technical acumen we have come to expect from them throughout this massive project.' (Gramophone)
