Recitative and Aria (2012)

Recitative and Aria (2012)

Carducci Quartet, Prema Arts Centre, Uley, Gloucestershire, January 2012.

Recitative and Aria was written for a 70th birthday party and the title reflects a love of opera of the couple to whom it is dedicated. The music evolves through a series of melodic variations on the initial theme, with lyrical string writing underpinned by unexpected rhythmic impulses.
