String Quartet - Free
At the Court of Cair Paravel
This is a composition which I wrote for my graduation recital, part of my requirements for my Master's degree in Composition. This string quartet is based upon a motif that is continually used and modified throughout the song. It is much a like a theme and variation song, with different moods and style changes. The keys change as well, 'At the Court of Cair Paravel' visits all 12 keys. It is a very tonal piece, and very listenable.
In my mind, the music reminds me of life in Cair Paravel, the legendary court in the chronicles of Narnia.
