South African born Kevin Volans studied with a number of eminent composers in Cologne including Mauricio Kagel and Karlheinz Stockhausen. He has written a number of chamber works including five string quartets. String Quartet 2 'Hunting : Gathering' is influenced by by and makes use of, African music. String Quartet 3 'The Songlines' was inspired by Bruce Chatwin's novel of the same title and it was written as a prelude to Volans' opera The man with Footsoles of Wind.
