Dominic Sewell - From Italy, With Love (String Quartet)

Dominic Sewell - From Italy, With Love (String Quartet)

A solid, serious work for aspiring string quartets or established groups, this piece was the subject of a master class from the Wihan Quartet from the Czech Republic. The quartet, inspired by Janáček's Intimate Letters quartet, was similarly inspired by letters from a woman to her lover. It is scored in three contrasting movements consisting of a gestural first movement, a slow arch form second movement and a fiery syncopated 5/4 finale.

"This is one of those pieces that although completely new to me, I could connect with it immediately. It is rare for me to be really moved by a 20th/21st century work the first time I hear or play it, but I'm not ashamed to say that I was genuinely moved to tears at points during the first play through of this quartet. It has a sincerity that rings throughout. I also loved how challenging it was - even after rehearsal, this piece keeps the performer on his/her toes, rhythmically and texturally. It is vibrant, emotional and intellectually satisfying." - Annelies Scott (tutor at Pro Corda and a 'cello teacher).

Review: "I have heard a number of pieces by Dominic Sewell. He has a lively music intelligence, and his songs in particular, which - quite unusually today - are one of the main features of his output as a composer, demonstrate his strong lyrical gift - as does the string quartet, which has impressive contrasts both of mood and texture." - David Matthews, composer, February 2002
