Programme Note:
African Earth Peace, eight pieces for string quartet by Carol Ann Weaver, composed in 2015-2016 in South Africa, celebrates, lauds, cries out for the natural world and various inhabitants of Kruger and Kalahari wilderness areas. Various animals are featured: two hartebeests whose horns are tangled and fight to the death; three dervishes for the threatened, lithe, colourful, social wild dogs who hunt, romp and take care of their own; a springbok lamb abandoned by its mother who could not survive; and the ringing essence of all other living forms in these natural wildernesses of Southern Africa. The work may be played in the given order or rearranged, as a partial set, or as individual pieces.
