The Maggini Quartet is a British string quartet. Its members are Julian Leaper (Violin 1), David Angel (Violin 2), Martin Outram (Viola) and Michal Kaznowski (Cello).[1]

Formed in 1988, the Quartet is known for championing the British repertoire, and has made many CD recordings published through publishers such as Naxos Records. The Maggini Quartet appear regularly in concert series at home and abroad and are frequent media broadcasters.

Among other notable projects, they have recorded the complete Naxos Quartets cycle by Peter Maxwell Davies. As Artists in Association and Honorary Fellows of Brunel University in West London, the Maggini give a series of weekend courses devoted to coaching both amateur and professional string quartets.

The Quartet's name derives from the famous 16th century Brescian violin maker Giovanni Paolo Maggini.

Second violinist David Angel died unexpectedly on April 10, 2017, at the age of 62.[2]
