TRACK DETAILS

The piano quartet, Crisis in the Hallway, is a musical reflection on the regrettably common crushes and crises of high school life. Throughout the opening section, the flute and clarinet share in and exchange contrapuntal flirtation on a common theme. The cello, distant from them in timbre and instrument class, is the odd one out, responding with forceful interjections. The activity of the opening and closing sections is tempered by a contemplative, chant-like middle section in which all three instruments share a melody more or less equally.
