Duration: 19 minutes
Grade Level: 5

String Quartet No. 2 was written in 2010 for the Afiara String Quartet. The violist at that time was Dave Samuel, who was my college roommate, and he asked for this piece when his mom passed away. Each movement tries to capture a different facet of her personality, with the first movement being a song without words for Dave to play for her. It was premiered in 2012 in Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center.

I. Psalm

II. Berceuse
