This quartet is based on classical/romantic models. It has been performed several times by the University of Redlands String Quartet, Western Society of Chamber Music String Quartet, and Cuatro Puntos String Quartet.

Mvt. 2, Adagio cantabile (D major). This was the last movement to be completed and the biggest departure from the rest of the quartet. Conceived as a chaconne-like theme and variations, the piece is driven by a repeating harmonic sequence. The second set of variations modulates to the dominant key, requiring transitional passages. Those transitions reoccur and undergo variation of their own, as the piece grows out of itself. After returning to the tonic key, the piece concludes over a long pedal tone, over which a plagal cadence occurs.

The live mp3 is a recording of the Cuatro Puntos String Quartet, 11/23/2013: Aaron Packard, violin Annie Trépanier, violin Kevin Bishop, viola Pablo Issa Skaric, cello
