Musica Solem

 Program Notes:

I wanted this piece to emulate the sun’s cycle. Each subsection within the piece is labeled with stages of the sun’s nightly movement, beginning with the sun setting. The piece, like many of my string works, takes major influence from Aaron Jay Kernis and his famous string quartet/orchestra piece, Musica Celestis.
