String Quartet No. 3
(B82) was completed in November 1994.
It is a re-working of the earlier work
Signatures (B50) for solo viola, and follows the same structure
of six short movements based on note rows built around specific intervals, together with a unifying feature
of a modal Scottish style folk melody. The relevant intervals are:-
1. major 3rd, major 2nd 2. minor 3rd, minor 2nd
3. perfect 4th, minor 3rd 4. tritone, major 3rd
5. perfect 5th, minor 2nd 6. major 3rd, major 2nd and major 6th
The sections may be regarded as a parallel to a divertimento:-
1.
Andante con moto - an expositionary section
2.
Allegro scherzando - a self-explanatory scherzo
3.
Poco adagio - an atmospheric section
4.
Allegro - a more textural section leading to
5.
Allegro - another short scherzo
6.
Andante pensiero - allegro - andante - where the folk style dominates the central section which is
flanked by a re-working of the theme of section 1 and then dies away as if into the mists.

The sound sample is the fifth movement - performed by the Lochrian Ensemble
