Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer for String Quartet

2024 | 22 min

Contact for score and parts.

Elements of polytonality…used to good effect… each voice, fragmenting melodic cells and passing them around the quartet with each player playing in imitation….a breath of fresh air. The Boston Musical Intelligencer


The two outside movements of the quartet are based on two songs from “Letting Go,” a song cycle setting of six poems by Donald Hall. These songs are “The Wish” (1. Fall) and “White Apples” (4. Summer).
