Footsteps in the can

The Mavron Quartet and poet Francesca Kay have recently recorded footsteps quiet in the dark (my second string quartet) for a forthcoming CD down at Tŷ Cerdd’s recording studio at Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff. The Mavrons have given eight public performances of the quartet and really have it under their belts. The piece’s title comes from Francesca Kay’s evocative poem Unicorn which she’s read at many performances; it has gradually become as an integral part of the piece.
