Additional Information

This String Quartet originated as a Sinfonietta for Chamber Orchestra in 1975. A quartet version was made of the second movement in 2002 and the whole work was recomposed for that medium in 2019. The piece was written during a period of study for a higher degree in composition and betrays an academic character, especially in the first movement where a twelve-tone technique involving a three-note cell irelentlessly employed. There is a more human character to the Largo, and the final movement includes a comic element.
