Thank you to the Flux Quartet who premiered my new String Quartet at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival last week! The piece was performed as part of the first Young Composer’s Program, and I was joined by two other wonderful composers, David Hertzberg and Elizabeth Ogonek. I was flattered to receive an extensive review from James Keller of the Santa Fe New Mexican:
“Midway through the 14-minute span of Reena Esmail’s String Quartet,
the character became a vivacious dance with complicated rhythms —
a South Asian take on John Adams, perhaps.”
