Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The piece is adapted from a string quartet movement written in 2015. One of my preoccupations at the time of composition was trying to reconcile the wealth of musical devices built up over centuries of classical music with the facts of 21st-century existence and the extended musical vocabulary built up in the last 100 years. The easiest emotions for a contemporary composer to convey are largely on the negative side of the spectrum, and in these piece I am trying to emerge from these feelings to access elation, euphoria and ecstasy.
