This was completed in April 1987, slightly revised for publication in 1994 with a few further revisions made for recording by the Lochrian Ensemble in 2007. The four movements follow the Classical pattern; the first movement, Sostenuto - allegro is followed by a scherzo (allegro molto, in 7/4), an adagio (also in 7/4) and a finale (allegro molto). The balance of the movements, however, differs in that the first and last movements are concertante movements for cello and first violin respectively; the argument of the third movement is largely made up of a "love duet" between the second violin and the viola, where the other two instruments have a mainly accompanying rôle, and only the scherzo has an equal balance between the forces. The Score and Parts are available on this site as separate downloads The sound sample is the second movement - performed by the Lochrian Ensemble The complete 6 string quartets performed by the Lochrian Ensemble are available on itunes: see: and for this quartet:
