Program Notes

I have composed my Second String Quartet in the fall of my wonderful year in Montréal for the Bozzini Quartet. The composition is a “danse macabre”, like the “indian summer”, when the nature is celebrating its (temporary) farewell with a festival of colours, with a “SCHERZO FUNÈBRE”. (Sometimes the humankind seems me like the nature during the indian summer.)
