The four movements of this charismatic suite Quartet for violas demonstrate that Richard Lane was inspired by master composers who have created the milestones of music history but show he was also cognizant of the harmonic practices of his own time, without relying on fashionable musical trends.
Lane’s music is characterised by subtle interlaced melodies which are supported by rich American harmonic textures that captivate the listener’s soul quickly and inspire an emotional response while allowing freedom for performers to share their expressive intent.
This work is dedicated to Myron Rosenblum, founder of the American Viola Society.
