Études 3 & 4 for solo violin – 23rd July

My new Études Nos. 3 & 4 for solo violin, commissioned by London Sinfonietta as part of their ‘Sinfonietta Shorts’ series, were premiered on the 23rd July at King’s Place‘s Rotunda Room. The two new études, lasting around five minutes in total, were played wonderfully by the Sinfonietta’s principal violinist Jonathan Morton to invited guests at one of the Sinfonietta’s ‘World Premiere Wednesdays’ series. The études will be recorded for NMC Recordings, who are recording all of the Sinfonietta Shorts for digital downloads.

The two new études now form a set alongside Études Nos. 1 & 2, which I wrote in 2010 for violinist Sarah Hill. Find more about the études here.
