GREENSPACE for triple string quartet (2012)
GREENSPACE for triple string quartet (2012) - 9 min.
Commissioned by the Cassatt String Quartet
From small city parks to majestic national parks and forests, the presence and preservation of green spaces continues to have an increasingly important impact on earth’s life forms. GreenSpace offers a soundscape representing the urban machine juxtaposed with natural surroundings. This duality pushes toward organic unity throughout the composition as ostinato patterns drive the piece forward while broad lyrical melodic gestures move in and out of the musical fabric.
