Programme Note
Judith Weir String Quartet (1990),
My String Quartet was written for the Endellion Quartet in 1990. It consists of three movements played together without a break with a total duration of just over twelve minutes.
Each of the movements is based on song fragments which I had previously composed, giving the quartet a relatively lyrical character throughout. The songs of the first two movements were settings of medieval Spanish romances: the third is inspired by a ballad from Banffshire, Scotland.
