Giles SwayneGZ091
String quartet | Duration: 5¾ minutes

A tribute to Swayne’s friend, the celebrated violinist, quartet leader and teacher Christopher Rowland, who died in June 2007. When Swayne visited Rowland three days before his death, to say goodbye, he found him singing (over and over again) the slow movement of Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante K.364. This piece takes a slightly altered version of Mozart’s theme, and weaves a set of intensely emotional variations upon it.

Full set of parts is included.
