A solo string quartet is the protagonist in this chamber-like music.
I’ve been thinking about the particular state of mind of a senior, that peculiar combination of expectancy, finality, boredom, and bewilderment that comes at the end of an important but mixed experience.
Senior is a bit sad, but not sentimental— or rather, whenever the music seems about to lapse into premature nostalgia, some new bauble comes along to distract it.
