In February, the Kentigern Quartet bring to the Drake their newly commissioned string quartet, The Voyager, by Lewis Murphy.

The Voyager tracks the journey of an imaginary character, from birth to death and back again, through a series of short movements each inspired by a fragment of text on the subject of time, impermanence, uncertainty and memory. Premiered on 14 November 2019 at Glasgow University, this will be the second performance of this Kentigern Quartet commission.

Born in Glasgow, Lewis Murphy began his training at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland before moving to London to study at the Royal College of Music. Since writing his first opera – Now ¬– in 2014, Lewis has become a prolific composer of music for the stage, with commissions from the Royal Opera House, the National Opera Studio, Scottish Opera, Glyndebourne and Sound Festival. His first main stage opera, Belongings (2017) was shortlisted for a Young Audiences Music Award (2018) in the category of Best Opera, and is to receive its US premiere in Minnesota in February 2020. Recent instrumental works include Variations on Ae Fond Kiss (2018), written for the Inverclyde Schools Wind Band, and the accordion/viola duo Breathing Space, written for the London-based Diphonon Duo (2019). The Voyager is his first work for string quartet.

Programme:

Mendelsohn: Quartet No 1 in Eb
Lewis Murphy: “The Voyager”

The players are:

Barbara Downie, Feargus Hetherington: Violins
Nicola Boag: Viola
