Sally Beamish was inspired to write Reed Stanzas by Elias Quartet’s Donald Grant, who doubles as a Scottish fiddle player. This, her third quartet, evokes windswept landscapes of Suffolk and Harris, threaded with the calls of a lapwing. It stands between two of Beethoven’s most ebullient essays in the form: the vivacious Op. 18 No. 1 in F, and one of the mighty ‘Razumovsky’ quartets, with its daring opening and vertiginously brilliant finale.
