String quartet (15’).
String quartet in three movements that follow a handful of musical materials as they move chronologically through three distinct styles: the Haydn-modeled textures of “I. Unhistorical Events,” the French Impressionistic melodic shape and ornamentation of “II. Appolinaire,” and the diatonic subsets and compulsively syncopated passages that comprise the final movement, “III. Sprung Rhythm.”
