String Quartet No. 2: Another Lark Quartet

string quartet (1997) -- violin I, violin II, viola, cello


String Quartet No.2: Another Lark Quartet is in three movements (none of which has anything to do with a certain quartet by Haydn or with songbirds of any sort). The overall tempo scheme of the movements is fast–slow–fast, with the exception of a very slow section at the heart of the first movement.  The work was commissioned, performed, and recorded by the Lark Quartet, when it was in residence at Ohio University.   [more info]
