Chamber ensemble String quartet - Advanced


Composed by John Craton. Chamber music. Modern string quartet in 3 movements. Contemporary. Score and parts. Duration 23 minutes. Wolfhead Music #WM109. Published by Wolfhead Music (WF.WM109).

Composed for the Messerkvartetten of Copenhagen, the music was inspired by the events of the opening months of the First World War (1914-1918). It seeks to depict on an emotional level three of the countless episodes that set the stage for the four-year struggle that lay ahead. The movements are titled "August 1914." "The Church of St. Nicholas at Dixmude," and "The Angels of Mons.".
