Programme Note:
I grew up in a musical home, both my parents being amateur string players, and in the evenings the house was often filled with the sound of string quartets. When I was experienced enough to learn the piano parts, I sometimes played with my parents and their friends: piano trios, quartets, and the quintets of Schumann, Dvorák, Brahms, Dohnányi and Franck. As a performer now I most enjoy making music with others in small ensembles.

This quintet is no doubt influenced in some ways by my early experiences with chamber music. Its musical language is mostly tonal and lyrical, but with some gestures to compositional styles of the 20th and 21st centuries. The first three movements are based on original musical ideas; the 4th and 5th are built from Franciscan chant melodies given to me by Marc Renault.
