Bb clarinet, violin, cello, and piano.
performed here by Becca Doggett (cl.), Nick DiEugenio (vln.), Hannah Collins (vc.), and Timothy Andres (pno.)
These two quartets, composed several years apart, are linked in that they were both written with familial subjects in mind: Bridges, for my sister’s wedding, and Footprints, as a memorial to Gabriella Spina, her first child. While one tries to depict a calm, blissful state, the other wallows in abject despair.
