The Kreutzers have now premiered 3 movements from Sadie’s new series ’The River Dreams of Winter’ for string quartet written during lockdown. The piece is based on artwork by Peter Sheppard Skaerved. The spectacular online performances have been ‘compiled’ by Peter from recordings made individually by himself, Mihailo and Clifton. The movements completed so far include a solo violin piece Slackwater-Midnight-Mist presented by Peter in his online series Opening the Composer’s Workshop:
a gentle violin duo entitled
The River Dreams of Winter II (youtube)
and a trio for 2 violins and viola entitled
City streets, dead ends, open windows, conversations, car horns, retracing steps, into the country! (youtube)
We are extremely grateful that these fabulous musicians are continuing to support Sadie through this period of such uncertainty and hoping that the new works will be heard live before too long.
