The quartet will be performing my work for string quartet "Supplication". The piece combines the form of a ricercar (a composition that is based on a repeating theme accompanied by other interweaving melodic lines) with material based on transcriptions of water, as well as the dissonances of 1940’s tonality.
The piece is titled "Supplication" because of the contrast between the more dissonant portions of the music and rare instances of a clearer theme towards which these portions are reaching.

Bassoonist Vincent Disantis and I performed Rain and Roles Reversals, the 1st movement from my Suite for Bassoon and Piano as part of Fulcrum Point’s Discovery series. I am immensely excited to have had this opportunity. There's also a great audience discussion after the performance.
