It has been a long time since I had any news to report on these pages. This is for a simple reason: or the best part of a year, I was working hard on my reimagining of the 1985 string quartet severance, which is now a completely rewritten work known simply as String Quartet (1985/2019). The score is completed but a legible copy is still in preparation. It vastly expands the original material (which I always thought was too cramped anyway) and lasts, probably, about 65 minutes.
I will have more to say about this work shortly.
Watch the Scores page for the appearance of the musical text, which, for the first time ever in my creative output almost hits the 300-page mark. Soon!
