About Sundown


Sundown (2000) is a short piece for string quartet, a reflection upon the often unseen and sometimes frenetic activity of nature as the sun sets at the end of the day.  The piece works well as part of a larger string quartet concert program.  I was honored that this piece was performed shortly after its composition as part of a composers' master class given by the great American composer William Bolcom.

While I do not have a recording of the master class or premiere performance, an okay MIDI rendering is available below.
