Composer's Notes

Fragment for string quartet was composed on August 30, 1994 in Southbury, Connecticut in memory of my good friend and colleague, David Huntley. This short work uses harmonics for the strings throughout, which, I hope, give a poignant character to my musical message. It had its premiere by the Kronos Quartet in New York at a concert dedicated to the memory of David on October 13, 1994.
