String Quartet

Item Number: BT.MUSSOS00956

This is - so far - the earliest composition by Davies to be available for performance, and mighty interesting it is. Written while he was still a young student, it provides a candid glimpse of the thing that concerned him: how music could be both forward-moving in the classical Western sense (this is, after all, a piece for a wholly conventional medium) and repetitive in the manner of the Indian and medieval music in which he was interested. What results is a singular machine geared to an intermittent ostinato in the first violin. Duration c. 5mins. Set of parts. This is a special item which is made to order. Please e-mail our Mail Order Department for further information.This is - so far - the earliest composition by Davies to be available for performance, and mighty interesting it is.
