Product details

Although this piece was written for string quartet, I imagine different themes to represent different instruments. The piece opens with a theme that resembles the song of a uilleann pipe (Irish bagpipe) or a flute. This is followed by a bodhrán (Irish frame drum) drum-beat from the cello. Then the violins' themes come in, and all the subsequent themes begin to compete with each other in what becomes a joyous Celtic dance.

Setting Sail was originally composed in 1999. Significant changes have been made to the music for the 2014 revised edition.
