The Cubists

Inspired by the works of Pablo Picasso and Albert Gleizes , I have composed a double movement string quartet named after these two giants. Picasso pictured left below and Gleizes were both contemporaries.
In both these pieces, I have tried to pull away from the raga concept so reminiscent of my earlier string quartets. Using a combination of pandiatonicism, off beat timing, both these pieces present a marked departure from my previous compositions, or atleast that’s my hope.
