International commission for Sadie Harrison

Sadie Harrison has been commissioned by Cuatro Puntos to write a new work for viola and rubab as a gift to the Afghanistan National Institute for Music.

The work will be premiered by American violist Kevin Bishop and a young rubab student at the ANIM in June 2014 (Sarataan 1393) at the Institute's Summer School in Kabul. Cuatro Puntos describe themselves as 'a collective of chamber musicians dedicated to global cooperation and peace through the writing and performance of new music worldwide', and have recently been involved in exceptional outreach work in Brazil and Bolivia. ANIM's school mottos are:
