String Quartet No. 2

Instrumentation: String Quartet

Duration: c. 11mins

Completed: 2019


Notes:

Written for the debut album of 6563 Records while in my final year at RCS. This single movement string quartet is in a 5 section, unbalanced arch form going from an opening dominated by open string harmonies, through a winding section inspired by Robert Simpson’s 6th Quartet into an energetic climax before turning back on itself in compressed fashion towards the end.

Parts included in download.
