Jet-lag, a light-hearted work, started with the thought of what jet-lagged music might sound like. It explores purposeful disunity within the quartet, featuring a certain amount of slapstick when separate parts head off in different directions, or are hard-headedly sticking to their own key. For reasons which once made sense and now are very obscure, there is also an unexpected explosion of endemic birdsong.
