Kreutzer Quartet-Peter Sheppard Skaerved, Mihailo Trandafilovski, Morgan Goff, Neil Heyde
Recorded-30 7 14 Aldbury Parish Church- Engineer-Jonathan Haskell

Musical supervision-David Matthews

Today, we recorded the very first piece which David Matthews wrote for String Quartet, a mirror canon, which he completed in 1963 at the age of 20. The beginnings of a extraordinary life as a composer; a beautiful piece, heard for the first time today, 41 years after it was written.
