"Midnight Prayer" for String Quartet by Keane Southard
16 Dec 2019
Premiered Nov. 21, 2019 at the Eastman School of Music by Leo Matsuoka, Hannah Kim-violins, Adrian Jackson-viola, and Joella Becker-cello. Keane Southard's website: keanesouthard.instantencore.com Program notes: Midnight Prayer for String Quartet was first written as a song for voice and piano around 2015, and this version for String Quartet was created October and November 2017 and revised in October 2019. Beginning with a very simple chord progression and melody-and-accompaniment texture that could almost be taken from popular music, I add subtle changes of meter and explore several ways of decorating the melody and harmonies with all kinds of string harmonics and other techniques. This piece is dedicated to my wife, Diane.
