The Maggini Quartet


Bitter-sweet return to Rickmansworth
for the
Maggini String Quartet

Rickmansworth classical music lovers will welcome back one of their favourite
string quartets on Friday, September 22.

The performance by the Magginis will be a poignant one as David Angel, second violinist of the award-winning quartet, died within a fortnight of their previous Three Rivers Music Society concert in March of this year.

David’s place has been taken by the gifted young Irish violinist, Ciaran McCabe, a former student of the Royal College of Music who has played with the Cavaleri Quartet since 2008.

The evening’s programme will include three of the most popular works in the string quartet repertoire.

The Magginis will play Mozart’s String Quartet No 15 in D Minor, which was dedicated to Haydn and was reputedly written while Mozart’s wife, Constanze, was giving birth to their first child in an adjoining room.

The second piece, Elgar’s String Quartet in E Minor, is one of three chamber works that Sir Edward composed in 1918. It was completed at his Sussex cottage on Christmas Eve, barely a month after the First World War had ended.

The final work, Dvorak's String Quartet No 12, was written while the Czech composer was on an idyllic summer vacation in Iowa in 1893. Dvorak wrote the quartet shortly after completing his celebrated New World Symphony.
