Nice to know you. I am enjoying your thread. Thanks for posting it. Ferneyhough has been a "whipping boy" here for while, for some unknown reason. Your thread, with those Quartet links is changing that, I think.
Thanks for listening and enjoying the vln sonata, as you can hear, I haven't cut the umbilical cord just yet, but you never know. Thanks for collating the Ferneyhough too - he's been on my to listen to list for a while now.
Had a listen to some of your 1st string4tet, any chance of posting the score. I'm always open to listening to music that I personally do not want to write (although I have dabbled in it and come to the conclusion that it is just not me) and would find it easier to listen to with a score. Of course I understand if you don't wish to for commercial or any other reason.
