Camden Reeves, Riverside Chase (World Premiere)
Sergei Prokofiev, String Quartet No.1 in B Minor, Op.50
To keep himself busy during the global lockdown, Camden Reeves took up lessons on blues harmonica. Dedicated to his harmonica teacher, Steve Lockwood, Reeves’ practising of early 20th century ‘fox chases’ finds its way into the scales and patterns of his new duet for two violins. Prokofiev’s Quartet Op.50 was commissioned by the Library of Congress, and first performed in Washington DC in 1931. Its intensely expressive finale remained one of the composer’s favourites among his compositions.
Followed at 2.30pm by Quatuor Danel composition workshop. The quartet will workshop new compositions by Masters students from the University of Manchester.
