Program notes

"Emergence" was composed for the Quatuor Bozzini and premiered in Vancouver, Canada in June 2015.

It is set in three movements or episodes that – through their material and emotional/psychological trajectories – formally describe three states of being:
I. Something from Nothing
II. Equilibrium
III. Into Nothingness
