Description
This is - so far - the earliest composition by Davies to be available for performance, and mighty interesting it is. Written while he was still a young student, it provides a candid glimpse of the thing that concerned him:howmusic could be both forward-moving in the classical Western sense (this is, after all, a piece for a wholly conventional medium) and repetitive in the manner of the Indian and medieval music in which he was interested.Whatresults is a singular machine geared to an intermittent ostinato in the first violin.
This movement for string quartet was first performed by the Arditti Quartet in May 1983, as part of the 40th Anniversary Gala concert oftheSociety for the Promotion of New Music at the Barbican Hall, London.
Score (miniature). Duration c. 5mins.
