String Quintet Suite No.1

Published on

This composition, “String Quintet Suite No.1”, isn’t one of my best ones, was rather rushed in order to complete for a contest and “The Albemarle Music Centre” in The City of Kingston Upon Hull #hull2017.

It was composed in 2009 while I was studying at Wilberforce College. I had such a short deadline and struggled to come up with anything much. Lester Hough, my teacher at Wilberforce, helped me complete the harmony with improvements to the score.

Originally, String Quintet Suite No.1 was suppose to be in a Jazz style, but I don’t think that worked out as much as I plan it to be.

Composed by Matthew Bunting
Arranged by Lester Hough

I’m self-taught pianist. I have interests in the traditional Roman and Greek literature of music dating from 1200.c to 1900 (Classical Music) and its contemporary forms by composers such as Edward Elgar to Joe Hisaishi (Modern Classical, minimalism, surrealism, anime / film / game). I also arrange, compose, transcribe and midi orchestrate music.
