Abstract

String Quartet is a work scored for standard string quartet, consisting of two violins, viola, and cello. The composition was completed in early August 2013, and was written in part to fulfill the requirements for the Masters of Music degree with a concentration in composition. The primary purpose of this thesis is to highlight various aspects of String Quartet and then offer comparisons between it and multiple works from the twentieth century centering on various musical elements such as; form, melody, harmony, rhythm, and texture.
