Jane Stanley's Lalla Rookh is a work - or a series of works now! - that we have been involved in since the quartet started. This film is a tour through the four versions written so far, and a fascinating glimpse into Jane's compositional process. Thanks to soundfestival
for facilitating this film.
The Covid-19 restrictions meant that travelling to Aberdeen to perform this programme of contemporary works for quartet wasn't possible. Thanks to St Margaret's Church, Newlands, Glasgow, we managed to find a space to record the concert in advance.
The programme contains works by Jamie Keesecker, Violeta Dinescu, Drew Hammond, Elizabeth Raum, Alisson Kruusmaa, and Michael Kallstrom.
We were looking forward to our trip to Orkney's St Magnus Festival in June 2020, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Here's a video of the first movement of Lynda Nicholson's Orkney Legends...recorded in a socially distant way!
