String Quartet No. 2 was composed in Winnipeg between September 2002 and February 2003. The work is in three movements, and is approximately twenty-five minutes in duration. The basic tempo arrangement of the movements is moderate, very fast, slow. This structure is intended in a way to push the piece in opposite directions, towards both speed and slowness. In contrast to this directional tension, there is a cyclical aspect to the piece, reflected in the use of certain musical materials throughout the piece, the most obvious of which is the return of the repeated pulse of the opening of the first movement at the close of the final movement.
This work was written for and dedicated to the Mondriaan Quartet, who gave the world premier performance on May 10, 2003, at Crescent Fort Rouge Church in Winnipeg.
