Brief Description: 5 miniature movements est. 7′

Program Notes:

In a language incorporating Argentine tango and hip-hop, String Quartet No. 1 paints a Webern-esque tapestry in 5 miniature movements. The emotional anguishes and passions represented in this piece are the very same links that make up the fabric of human experience. The five movements of String Quartet No. 1 represent snapshots of different vignettes across human history. The emotional bonds fluctuate through restated motifs being permutated throughout the movements.
