Ian Wilson: Winter's Edge

Celebrating British Music: Winter's Edge - the String Quartet no 1 by Belfast-born Ian Wilson. It was composed in 1992, and its theme is Redemption, as exemplified in the New Testament account of the life of St Paul. Elements of conflict, isolation and destiny provided Wilson with the musical spurs for this single-movement work. Performed by the Vanbrugh Quartet for whom it was written.
