Arguably the afternoons highlight, Ivor McGregor’s second string quartet, is a substantial three-movement work which takes it’s inspiration from Cornish childhood memories. Even if there is nothing essentially Celtic in the writing, the visual allusions were always evident, in a piece which has that enviable ability to create passages of uninhibited romantic expression, while still couched in a more dissonant harmonic language.
