String Quartet No. 4

1. Allegro

2. Adagietto

3. Allegretto

4. Presto

The composition of this quartet was completed in June 2021. Each movement is different in mood, but they are interrelated by the inclusion of dotted upbeat rhythms. In addition, a melody from the Allegro reappears in a different metre in the Allegretto, and harmonies from the Adagietto (a chaconne) reappear in the middle of the Presto.
