String Quartet for L’Vov
Sometimes life suddenly presents you with an opportunity you never saw coming. So it was in 1999 when my then colleague, the fine Ukrainian composer Alla Sirenko, suggested I wrote a string quartet for a concert in L’vov. The expedition to hear the wonderful first performance in front of a large, enthusiastic audience, was one of the great experiences of my composing life. It even included being interviewed on Ukrainian radio! Use these links to see the first pages of the 1st Movement, 2nd Movement, 3rd Movement.
