Cassidy, Aaron (2013) The String Quartet as laboratory and playground for experimentation and tradition (or, opening out/closing in). Contemporary Music Review, 32 (4). pp. 305-323. ISSN 0749-4467Metadata only available from this repository.
A discussion of my two string quartets, in particular the second, exploring the push and pull of consolidation, simplification and refinement against experimentation, innovation and exploration. The article argues that this friction has been part of the history of the string quartet since its inception, and makes a speculative proposal in an effort to explain why the genre still plays a pivotal role in experimental composition.
