“senesce”, my string quartet piece on tour with the Madawska String Quartet


During January and February, the Madawaska String Quartet will be performing my 2009 quartet piece, “senesce” on various programs of theirs throughout Ontario. I’m very happy with the work, and it was actually what got me back into composing within the chamber music medium, after nearly five years without touching it. At the bottom of the post you can stream a recording of the piece made at its workshop performance in 2009.

Here are the concerts which feature the piece (click the address for maps)
