This is the second movement Andante quasi adagio of McEwen's Symphony in A minor composed between 1895 and 1899 and published in 1903 in a String Quartet adaptation due to it not being performed in its orchestral version. The chief subject of the movement is a traditional fiddle tune The Arran Boat Song [information derived from Alasdair Mitchell's 2002 PhD thesis].

Publicity about the performance states "the concert promises to be particularly notable for its rendition of John Blackwood McEwan's Symphony in A Minor, of which this performance is the English Premiere!" (see: https://www.dur.ac.uk/whatson/event/?eventno=9084)

The String Quartet adaptation String Quartet No.2 in A minor is available on the Chandos CD of Volume 3 of McEwen's String Quartets with the Chilingirian Quartet.
