Glimpses of a half-forgotten future started life as a single movement work for clarinet quartet, which was commissioned and premiered by Clariphonics in the 2009 Park Lane Group Young Artists Series at the South Bank, London. I have wanted to rework this movement for string quartet ever since – writing for the Carducci Quartet offered the perfect opportunity, this piece becoming the first movement of the present work. The second and third movements pick up where the first left off.

The work is dedicated to the Carducci Quartet, and was first performed by them on 13 November in the Concert Hall at Cardiff University School of Music.
