Lament in a Trampled Garden, 1992

Commissioned by: CBC for the 4th Banff International String Quartet Competition

Premiered by:

“The element of despair injected into the romantic and waltz-like sections, and the sudden evaporation of the latter, were especially memorable.” Tamara Bernstein, The Globe and Mail, April 1993

“D’esthétique postmoderne et de style musique-de-film, l’oeuvre ne casse rien tout en expoitant habilement les resources expressive du quatour à cordes.” Carol Bergeron, Le Devoir, avril 1993

“My goal in writing this work was to offer a poetical and dramatically lyrical piece that puts accent on the performers’ interpretive skills. The work starts simply with a slow and expressive theme, with an arpeggiated accompaniment that gradually unravels into a series of variants of the theme, reflecting what the title implies. There is ample room for various interpretations of a music which moves from sweet sorrow to anger and aggression, to despair, to an up-beat swing, to a sense of resignation and a longing for lost beauty.”
