Writing & recording ‘String Quartet No.1’ by Fiona Brice, performed by Brother Tree Sound
The quartet performed the work a second time for the album launch at the October Gallery, London on 19th Sept 2018, and the work has subsequently been broadcast on BBC Radio 3. The third movement has proved the most popular so far online, clocking up 75,000 plays on Spotify. The modern habit of cherry-picking movements rather than listening to the whole journey through three movements is a bit like skipping straight to dessert without reading the rest of the menu to me, but the truth is I’m grateful that anyone is listening at all.
Finally, the album cover is photograph I took whilst living in Brighton. Four separate pillars of the old West Pier standing proudly in the water, which illustrates the quartet perfectly for me.
Keep your eyes open for a new video for “String Quartet No.1” by Anna DeBruin and Brother Tree Sound which will feature on At Home with LMP on Tuesday 19th May.
