MAXWELL QUARTET
TOM HANKEY viola

The Maxwell Quartet return to the Loch Shiel Festival with a new accolade: as first prizewinners at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2017. They are joined by two fantastic colleagues, violist Tom Hankey and cellist Robert Irvine, for a very special performance of Brahms' first string sextet in B Flat, a work as rich in meoldic beauty as any that Brahms composed. Alongside this, the Maxwell Quartet perform one of Haydn's great Op. 71 quartets, the set of which features in their debut recording on Linn Records.

HAYDN Quartet in E Flat Op 71 no 3
BRAHMS Sextet no.1 in B Flat

This concert is followed by a buffet meal by Jill Gosney of Ardsealach Lodge (7.30pm)
