String quartets


The following items are extra pieces of Johnstone, which are not planned for publishing preparation but are presented here (generally) in a clear hand-written manuscript copy in a PDF file. We are very pleased for you to have a copy of these works. You are free to make any additional photocopies, and to publicly perform or record the work.

FREE PUBLICITY - If you care to inform of any public performance, no matter how important or not the event might be, we would be happy to give your event free publicity on the johnstone-music web page. To take advantage of this, simply visit the ‘Contact’ section in and leave a message with the details in ‘Performances’!   Please try to write, if possible, 2 weeks or more in advance with any information so we are able to prepare the details (but in any case do write all the same, even if just before the performance!).


All visitors to this page should note that most of the important compositions of David Johnstone are commercially published in beautiful presentations by CREIGHTON'S COLLECTION - and these works can be seen clearly in the johnstone-music Web Page in both the 'Sheet Music' and the 'Shopping' sections. It is well worthwhile to enter the publisher's own site at - clicking into 'Sheet Music' and then into 'Johnstone Music'. There you can find full details of every published work, and be able to browse for programme notes, front cover images, music page samples, an updated catalogue, and (often) music audio extracts.

Enjoy the music!!!


Es un repertorio inusual y muy recomendable para cuartetos que busquen algo diferente e interesante. Muy buena escritura a 4 voces en la que ninguna queda excluida en importancia. Gracias David

This is a very unusual and very recommendable repertoire for quartets who look for something different and interesting. The music is very well written in 4 voices in which no voice is excluded in importance. Thanks David.


¡ Muchas gracias David! Para los que tocamos en cuartetos de cuerda habitualmente es difícil a veces encontrar partituras diferentes. Pero tú lo has hecho fácil! Gracias otra vez.

Many thanks David! For those of us who regularly play in string quartets it is sometimes difficult to find different kinds of scores. But you have made it easy! Thanks once again.

ARITZ GOMEZ URANGA - Spanish-Basque professional Cellist

Los Cuartetos de Cuerdas tienen una sonoridad propia, sabiendo cómo sacar el máximo provecho a cada instrumento. Su sonata para Violín Solo refleja gran madurez, originalidad y frescura. Una música muy atractiva de escuchar y de tocar.

The String Quartets have their own sonority, knowing how to give maximum opportunity each instrument. Your Solo Violin Sonata reflects great maturity, originality and freshness. A music that is very attractive to hear and to play.
