Notes

  • Program notes: 

    String Quartet No. 5 (Songs from Childhood)

    This work (in one movement) is not literally about songs from childhood but more the faded memory of such songs, or even the imagining of songs that might have been. The use of continually shifting meter and micro-tuning imbue the work with a dreamlike floating quality, both fragile and illusive.
