Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...Walton's...String Quartet of 1947...brilliantly encapsulates the essence of Walton, the terse craftsman and the sensual melancholic...[The] Maggini's performance is hugely persuasive. Its view of the work is salt-fresh, and it makes it sound so enjoyable to play...[In the] Piano Quartet...The Maggini swings through its fluid narrative with febrile energy..." ***** -Wallace, BBC Magazine

International Record Review
This is highly recommended disc, a fine introduction to the composer at the outset of his career and as he approached his final masterpieces. The pianist is the admirable Peter Donohoe and Maggini's account of A minor Quartet is one of the finest I have ever heard...
