Good gracious! This is a surprise! I did not know that this big work (the composer's biggest in fact) had ever been broadcast.

The other day I was in a secondhand bookshop in Birnam (of all places) with a remarkably good selection of CDs. One thing I spotted was this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Maconchy-Complete-String-Quartets-Mistry/dp/B0000V3QAU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1509387318&sr=8-1&keywords=Maconchy%2BComplete%2BString%2BQuartets/

- which I didn't know existed. But I'm trying not to buy more CDs until I've played all the ones I've got!

The Maconchy String Quartets are very good. They form a series on a par with other great C20 SQ series such as Holmboe, Tippett, Simpson, Salmanov, Sculthorpe, David Matthews, Diamond and (ducks for cover) Milhaud.
