Another great day recording Reicha with my Kreutzer Quartet friends in Aldbury (listen to outtakes here: Reicha Op.49 No.2). It has been such a privilege to able to play some fantastic instruments for our Reicha recordings: the ‘Kustendyke’ and the ‘Regent’ Strads. Peter and I finished the day with a short conversation about the experience of playing these instruments, about composing, and colour – and it was simply an amazing experience to record a couple of my violin pieces on the ‘Regent’ (seen in the photo on the left): In the Hills (from Čekori), and Fragments-Light, the first piece I wrote for Peter and the Enlightenment Gallery in the British Museum. You can hear this dialogue and the recordings here: Mihailo Trandafilovski – Interview and Performance.
