This was written in 1998, whilst studying for an MMus in Composition at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. It was selected as a test piece for the Dorothy Adams prize, an internal string quartet competition held at the Guildhall in February 1999. The Vellinger quartet workshopped it at the GSMD in May 1999. In September of the same year, Alexander Goehr awarded it the Lutoslawski prize, the main composition prize held at the Guildhall. The Todeno quartet performed it at the Royal Northern College of Music in January 2000 as part of the Manchester QuartetFest.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
