Blue rose : for string quartet / Elena Kats-Chernin.
by Elena Kats-Chernin (2005)
Blue Rose (2003)
(a simpler and shorter version of "For Rosa")
Blue Rose is based on two folk melodies which have been freely
developed. It uses uneven beats and bars which creates a rocking
feeling that is somewhat reminiscent of Balkan music. The title
refers to the way the piece starts, unfolding and blooming as it
slowly becomes stronger, like the blue light of dawn. It is one
of the few pieces of mine that is based in a major key (D major).
Apart from the string quartet version, there is also a version
for violin and piano.
Also a version for 3 violins exists, this version has never been performed.
