Product details

Written for Flinders Quartet, this work was commissioned by Julian Burnside to celebrate the birthday of Barry Jones. This 7th string quartet is subtitled Recognition in reference to Barry's recent book, The Shock of Recognition, but also as 'recognition' for Barry's championing and support of the arts in general.

The 4 movements of this quartet reference 4 well-known works from the Western canon (presented chronologically, spanning 120 years). In his book, Barry describes these works as 'tragic', 'passionate', 'evocative' and 'sublime' respectively.

The title of each movement provides a clue as to the identity of the work (the composer and year in which it was written). String Quartet No.7 presents hidden variations on prominent themes from these works, but toward the end of each movement the original is revealed more overtly, allowing 'recognition'. The intended effect is to reveal what has been heard all along without consciously knowing it (though the movements may also be appreciated on their own terms without knowledge of the originals).
