Synopsis

After the success of my first string quartet “The Dreamer”, the first violinist from the quartet approached me to compose a new piece for her to perform at an upcoming festival. The opening melody, which the violin plays unaccompanied, came into my mind during a winter night while I was looking out my bedroom window at the snow. I used this not only for the opening, but also in the middle section of the work.
