Solicitations, composed for and dedicated to Diotima String Quartet, was co-commissioned by the Luxembourg Philharmonie (Rainy Days Festival) and Maison de la Radio (Festival Présences).
Solicitations: songs, cries, whispers, is a series of musical invitations that explore boundaries as offerings. Through solos, duos, trios, and quartets, the ensemble exchanges words as gestures, which hang at edge of comprehension as touch. Building on my trio “any bed but one’s,” it draws inspiration from Fiona Sampson’s haptic poem Drowned Man.
