Dance Sketches

String Quartet

Scored for violin, viola, cello and double bass, this work was written in 2013 and is made up of 3 diverse dances – Arabian Folk Dance (characterized by melody, harmonic bareness, syncopated rhythms and use of the double harmonic scale); Stately Court Dance (dignified style, characterized by the use of syncopated rhythmic patterns within a 4/4 meter) and Dance of the Clockwork Toys (quite staccato in character as the title suggests).

Dance Sketches is published by Naxos Sheet Music Publishing
