This piece is based on the idea of two opposing forces: "Dream" and "Reality". It is composed in two connected movements: the introductory movement is soulful and meditative. The string quartet's sonority is displayed in a coloristic and atmospheric fashion. At one time all members of the quartet are challenged to sing and play, depicting the "sobbing souls". The second movement is a continuous outburst of nervous energy. The musical materials are displayed in an unpredictable but connected manner. It is a musical journey of euphoria and wretchedness.
This piece was written for the Penderecki String Quartet, commissioned by the group through a grant from the Laidlaw Foundation.
