Smith's Alchemy for string orchestra derives from Carl Vine's String Quartet No. 3. This 15-minute work seeks to transform the individual instruments into a single "super" instrument while capitalising on their natural singing qualities - a kind of aural alchemy. Commenting on this arrangement of the original quartet version of the piece, Vine says that `the potential to "share" difficult techniques across more than one instrument has in many ways liberated the music, allowing greater emphasis on its lyrical qualities.'
