Larry Hoffman : String Quartet No 4 : I. Dance II. Chill III. Get Funky
I enjoy composing single-movement works, as they give me more room to develop ideas. The four-movent scheme is prevalent in the classic symphonies and string quartets ( I. Sonata -Allegro / II. Song form /III. Sherzo / IV. Rondo, Sonata-Allegro -or related) , but I am not sure that this convention is in any way mandatory in the twenty-first century :) In this case, I did want to try selecting and identifying specific moods with the three movements.
