When I was writing my String Quartet No. 1 in D minor, I
finished three movements, the first, third and fourth, got bored,
and then stopped. I told myself that I would come back to it . .
. and at the beginning of 2015 I did . . . but it was [censored]
and I trashed it. It had been performed a number of times at that
point with just the three movements, and though it worked well as
it was, I still felt that it needed something to break up the
rather heavy first and third movements.
So . . . I wrote this . . .
Movement to, is a stand-alone work for string quartet, suitable for performance in alongside any program of works, which can be performed in place of the missing second movement. For this purpose, it was written with the abandoned movement's length and key in mind, making use of some of the drafted melodies and themes, however without making an attempt to recreate my earlier compositional style.
Instrumentation: 2 violins, viola, cello.
Duration: 7 min.
First performance: by Armas Quartet — 19 Mar 15. Argo presents: MEDITATIONS, St Johns Cathedral, Brisbane
