Programme Note:
As is evident from the dedication, this quartet was commissioned by a loving family celebrating a long-flourishing marriage. This suggested a two-movement work: the first movement would be lively and energetic; the second would be slower and more steady, but with outbursts of passion. Both movements would be based on the same material. In the second movement, the live quartet is doubled by a pre-recorded quartet suggesting both a reflection of distant memories and a strengthening of love and affection.
