String Quartet #2

My second string quartet was written in late 2007 and early 2008 on commission from the Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, Vermont in honor of its 100th anniversary. It’s a five-movement work in which movements I and II are played without pause. The same is true of movements IV and V. Here is a recording made at the premiere performance in March, 2008, performed by the Chiara String Quartet, for whom the work was written:

Movement I:


Movement II:


Movement III:


Movement IV:
