String Quartet (2016)  rev. 2020

My first string quartet is a 10-minute rhapsodic journey filled with technical twists and turns where the quartet plays many characters throughout; many from the very lyrical, to the most stark and mechanical. It begins with machine-like gestures that are often passed around the ensemble with tight rhythmic precision. It gradually morphs into something more emotional, where its melodic story begins to unfold.
