Back to Music Back to Chamber

Piano Quartet (2013, rev. 2014)

for violin, viola, cello, and piano
duration: 21 minutes


A substantial three-movement work for the standard “piano quartet” ensemble, this was the first piece I completed after open heart surgery in February, 2013. I was inspired to write the quartet after attending a performance of the Mozart Piano Quartet in G-minor, K. 478. The piece is dedicated with love and gratitude to my husband Steve Szot, who has been my best friend and companion since 1978. The piece was premiered on January 7, 2016, at the Charles Sumner School Museum in Washington, DC by Brenda Anna (violin), Jennifer Murray (viola), Jason Love (cello), and me (piano).
