Piano Quartet #1

I composed my Piano Quartet #1 in 2018 on commission from my friends, the Northern Third Quartet: Sofia Hirsch, violin; Elizabeth Reid, viola; John Dunlop, cello; and Alison Cerutti, piano. The work is in six movements. Movements II and V are solo movements for viola and cello, respectively, while Movement III is a duet for violin and cello. Movements I, IV and VI are for the entire quartet. Here is a recording of the Northern Third Quartet’s third performance of the work in October, 2018:
