The String Quartet No.1 was originally composed in three continuous movements, to be played without pause. Here, it is offered for download as three separate tracks. The piece is performed by the Sunrise Quartet, Teri Lazar (violin), Kim Miller (violin), Osman Kivrak (viola), and Diana Fish (cello), in a live concert.

The String Quartet is built around an opening theme: the first movement is the theme's introduction over a somber ("doloroso") accompaniment; the second expands the theme in a scherzo-like setting; and the third imagines it as a fugue, ending in a brutal, loud apotheosis before subsiding into the opening movement's music.
