I began writing the 1st movement while working on my 3rd Quarterly Suite. I planned on publishing it in 2015 but then I realized I was way in over my head. So I spent a year organizing it into a little (but lengthy) piece.
I rarely compose or play slow pieces but writing the 2nd movement was a real treat, especially practicing it after long and strenuous days of work.
The 3rd movement? Lots of fun!
