Shostakovich at Bristol Affordable Art Fair
My latest series of responses to the Carducci Quartet recording of Shostakovich Quartet 11 will be on the Hadfield Fine Art stand at the Bristol Affordable Art Fair between 9 - 11 September 2016.
I'm delighted! This is really an extraordinary quartet comprising seven short, bullet-like movements of intense emotion, played as one continuous piece. I was completely inspired to create seven intense moody landscapes bases loosely on memories of the mountains and forests of Snowdonia, and, as in the 8th quartet, the River Severn.
