Product details

Completed in 2018, the quartet contains two parts, each introduced by the same elegiac melody played by a solo string instrumentalist. Part I is characterized by sustained pitches passed between the strings against a metronomic piano accompaniment (Larghetto). These eventually give way to descending note flurries and syncopated chorale elements (Andante), temporarily interrupted by a quieter, contemplative section (Lento). Part II consists of a wistful melody in fourths (Largo) that is gradually developed then finally bursts forth in a more sunny restatement. This is replaced by unsettled, darker section of great rhythmic drive (Ritmico, alla breve), broken by a pensive melody introduced by cello (Largo). Following an extended pedal point underneath increasingly agitated runs and repeated notes, there is an excited return to the section's opening theme on the piano (marked "ecstatic and colossal" in the score), accompanied by furious string arpeggios (Ritmico, alla breve). The pensive melody returns (Largo) but is ultimately swept away by a rhythmic string and piano flourish (Ritmico, alla breve).
