A Prelude for String Quartet (2000)
approx. 3 min 10 sec
Student string quartet, Crane School of Music
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.
