about

The Abode of Snow is a new name for my third string quartet. The version here is scored for glockenspiels that clearly illuminate the individual voices. The original string quartet actually consisted of violin, viola, cello, and double bass.

The first part of the composition is rather mystical, and moves at a slow tempo. The second part is rhythmic in nature, returning to slower music in it’s middle section, and then concluding with more rhythmic music in the third and concluding section.
