This is the world premi?re of the string quartet in 1997, performed by the Manchester Camerata Quartet.
It is written in the Octatonic mode but in the third movement the viola breaks out into Dorian mode
while the other instruments stay in the Octatonic creating a fascinating effect
There are also a few cheeky quotes from the more classical modes, including a Cockney
"Have a banana" phrase in the viola part in various places
and the fourth (last) movement quoting a version of Rock a by baby
