Premiere: 4/18/78
Carnegie Recital Hall, New York, NY

Program Note: 
Quatrain, scored for violin, viola, clarinet & bass clarinet, features a conversational interaction among the four instruments and plays with the timbral links between the two like-instrument pairs, while at times breaking them. It won the East and West Artists Composition Competition and was premiered at Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall in 1978.
