|Recording (468k)||No description|
This work was commissioned by the 2002 New Zealand International Festival of Arts as an “encore” for the three string quartets who had participated in a triple-bill concert. In a kind of energetic flurry, each quartet plays its own version of a simple 4-note motive. Three other motives also appear as “cultural tags”: Singapore being pentatonic, New Zealand as somewhat self-effacing, and Mexico reminiscent of the South American protest song “The People United Shall Never be Defeated”.
