The Abode of Joy

Michael Robinson

About this work:
The Abode of Joy is a new name I have for my String Quartet No.2 . The piece is articulated here by glockenspiels, which bring clarity to the individual parts. The first movement is a whirlwind, the second movement is more playful, the third movement is reflective, and the final movement is based on a medieval folk melody. - Michael Robinson, Lahaina, December 2000 © 2000 by Michael Robinson All rights reserved
