Performer Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The three pieces on this disc are all for string quartet, or two string quartets (Gaggle and Flock). Ars Moriendi, Latin for "the art of dying well," in 9 sections, is an extremely personal composition, virtually a diary describing the demise of the composer's father. 'Lude' was written as a companion piece to J.S. Bach's 'Contrapunctis XI' from 'The Art of the Fugue,' and Gaggle and Flock was composed to celebrate collegial bonds between the two excellent quartets that share this recording.
