Minuet And Trio For String Quartet, In Classical Style
Using models from the string quartets and other works by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, your work will explore the "rounded binary" form typical of the classical Minuet and Trio and the relationship of form, key and "tone" that characteristically exists between them.
These compositions were performed by an anonymous professional string quartet.
