Regular price $80.00 Sale

String Quartet in three movements, c.12'40

The music is written especially for competent, non-professional, performers who may wish to engage with contemporary styles of music and who may want to explore music for string quartet that goes beyond that of the traditional repertoire.

The pitch material is based largely on modal resources and is, for the most part, quite straightforward throughout. The main challenge for performers lies within the areas of rhythm and in the precision of the rhythmic interplay between all instruments in the ensemble. In each movement, the music often takes the form of a ‘conversation’ between the instruments, with everyone in the ensemble contributing important melodic elements to the overall texture at various times.
