Hi Charles--Thanks so much for your kind words--theyre very much appreciated:)

This was written during the last almost year which was a horrible time for me with health problems, and losing a loved one to illness. I worked on this and a long piano work also--mostly the piano work--and was able to write music but not a lot that rang true with me. ( I also wrote two lullabies for my grandsons)

Sorry the score needs to be engraved, and for the phrasing I would suggest always approaching a string quartet as four separate distinct and different people/soloists who will all have their say--and even sometimes agree with each other:)

To accomplish this I find it best to compose a small section voice by voice, and then adjust..its tedious at times but works for me.

Hope that helps!!

Thanks so much for your interest and kind words!

Bob

Bob this is just sublime. It sums up the change in direction I'm trying to work into my music but marshalled with a focus that leaves me behind, sad to say! How long did this take you? And I hope you don't mind if I ask for a score extract? Some of your phrasing is deeply complex and I would love to see how you approached it.
