Programme Note:
Commissioned by the Bozzini String Quartet of Montréal, Canada with assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts.


'River' is a poetic look at the Yukon as a river that has evolved against the trends of our times. The population along its banks peaked in the early 1900s. Today, forests and wildlife have returned, and the only travelers one sees are a few adventure seekers. It is a river that flows from the future into the past.

Note: The fourth movement of String Quartet #2: River is accompanied by a film.

Premiere Information:
11/2/2011, Chapelle du Bon Pasteur, Montreal; Bozzini String Quartet
