By Kristina Arakelyan
For January's concert, we thought we would bring you a new piece - Dialogues - by the wonderful Kristina Arakelyan, something we recorded in July 2020. We were able to rehearse and record it within a week and loved exploring the new textures and techniques that Kristina created from the quartet. We hope you enjoy the piece, please do send feedback to us via our 'Contact' page!
A little bit about Dialogues from Kristina herself:
"The piece is about irreconcilable arguments – going round and round with no resolution and is meant to be quite theatrical, with the members of the quartet being rather ‘rude’ to each other, constantly interrupting and snapping (quite literally!). It was influenced by Webern’s ideas about variation form and organicism, with a central theme which generates all material."
As ever, we are very grateful for any donations received.
