Today, I found that David Matthews’ music is surrounding me. The quartet is rehearsing the 2nd and 3 Quartets to complete Volume 3 of our complete Matthews Quartets on Toccata Classics. In addition, he has just finished his transcription of all the Beethoven Op 119 ‘Bagatelles’ for the Kreutzers-and the score just arrived, together with a new violin version of his ‘Albumleaf for Sally’ dedicated to Sally Cavender, of Faber Music, his publisher, who are responsible for the wonderful new imprint of his ’15 Fugues’, written for me, in an edition which we prepared together.
