Smith Quartet

Nature Unwrapped

Volans Hunting: Gathering
Shaw Plan & Elevation: The Beech Tree, The Orangery
Bates Pond Life
Adams The Wind in High Places
Vasks String Quartet No. 2 Summer melodies

A programme of heat and dust, high winds and summer shadows from the iconic Smith Quartet.

Kevin Volans’s delicate, minimalist Hunting: Gathering combines his South African and European heritage in music of mesmerising beauty, while Vasks’s second quartet ‘Summer Melodies’ draws inspiration from the arrival of summer in Latvia, its forests, flowers and birdsong.

Caroline Shaw takes us into the garden at Dumbarton Oaks, from the tracery of light through leaves in the Orangery to a majestic beech tree; John Luther Adams transports us to Alaska for The Wind in High Places, transforming the quartet into an Aeolian harp, winnowed by the wind.

For over 20 years The Smith Quartet have been at the forefront of the world’s contemporary music scene, establishing an international reputation for their dynamic style and original approach to contemporary music.
