The Magginis gave the first performance of Ronald Corp's Second String Quartet at Canterbury Christ Church University on 11th June 2010. In the words of the composer: \The success of the first quartet ('The Bustard', premiered by the Magginis at the Wigmore Hall in February 2008) presented me with two happy outcomes. The first was the realisation that I could express myself effectively in non-vocal music on a larger scale, and also the enthusiasm of the audience encouraged me straight away to write a 'sister' work". Corp's String Quartet No. 1 takes its name from the world's largest, most stately and regal bird, the bustard, whose soaring flight and dance-like gait are evoked in this fascinating piece. String Quartet No. 2 celebrates a baby boy's birth with joyful and exuberant music. The composer describes his song-cycle Country Matters as 'poignant and riotously outrageous'. The soloist here is tenor Mark Wilde.
