String Quartet No. 3

stringquartet3String Quartet No. 3¬†was written for the 2005 Aspen Music Festival. The work was begun in Aspen, CO. in August of 2004 and completed in Minneapolis in January of 2005. With several friends getting married at the time, the original inspiration for the four movements was old wedding fallacy of “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”. Although the movements do not carry these titles, their initial impetus was generated by this superstition.

4 Movements (Mvt I, Mvt II, Mvt III, Mvt IV)
