  • Additional Information:
  • Northern Mosaic was composed in 2012 for the Madawaska String Quartet. Like a visual mosaic, this music is built from small sections that fit together to form the larger design. One aim of the work is to explore the various instrumental combinations, from the full quartet to trios, duos, and solos. The music builds on the sonorities of the open strings, at times evoking folk music and at other times perhaps evoking the lights of a northern night sky through ethereal natural harmonics. Northern Mosaic is dedicated to Mary Luard, who bravely transported a marble mosaic home to Canada from the island of Jerba in Tunisia, carrying it on and off of boats, trains, and planes.
