Product details

In 1986 I had sketched out two works, both left incomplete, and both notionally for violin
and piano. The sound of a piano with a solo instrument was never a favourite with me,
and, besides, one of these abandoned works eventually turned out to be a chamber work:
"The Secret Gates of the House of Osiris". Thus, what was originally in four movements
finished up as twelve, and what was for violin and piano became music for flute, viola,
cello and piano. The extended colour and development of the basic materials in the
quartet seemed to answer my dissatisfaction with the original concept.
However, when the idea of composing a special piece to honour Jan's 70th birthday arose,
I went back to my 1986 sketches. It seemed to me that with some reworking, the original
idea might be worth salvaging. The "Tetragrammaton" is like a compressed version of the
later quartet; it is, too, by its very nature, more intimate and introverted.
