Frenetic Energy (string quartet version)

by Nathan R. Johnson

Version for string quartet. Performed by the Eclipse Quartet.

This piece started life as a one-minute work for string quartet. The fantastic Eclipse Quartet was playing a concerts the included a suite of “one-minute-wonders” written by student composers. My contribution was this study in quirky rhythmic rifts. I later orchestrated it for a concert by the Bremerton Symphony, who like it so much that they played it as an encore for its own premiere!
