String Quartet no. 1 is a single-movement work that is approximately 10 minutes long. Fast, rhythmic passages contrast with slow, pulsing gestures, challenging the rhythmic ensemble of the quartet throughout the work.
Appropriate for a string quartet with excellent experience in playing together and in playing "New Music" with an ear for its beauty. Occasional very high lines exist in the first violin part, and harmonics and glissandi appear in all parts. This download comes in a zip file that includes the full score and four parts.
