    Three Portraits for string quartet plus clarinet

    (2012)

    I. Harbinger II. Character III. Wanderer

  • Instrumentation: Clarinet in B-flat

    Violin I

    Violin 2

    Viola

    Cello

    Program Note: Three Portraits was composed over the summer of 2012, the first summer that I spent away from my hometown of Littleton, CO. Influenced by the emotions of homesickness, nostalgia, or perhaps the combination of both, I set out to create a piece dedicated to different friends back home, who have helped shape me into who I am (and who I am not) today.

    Special thanks to A.J. McCaffrey for his instruction and guidance during the composition of this piece.
