Destined for Adventure (String Quintet)



“Destined for Adventure” brings to mind concepts that demand some level of gravitas and bombast, and the full-bodied sound of a (non-traditional) string quintet provides this. Shifting tonal centers allude to the different stages of a heroic journey and the unexpectedness of each. The minor ending reminds the audience that the adventure is destined, not achieved; someone still has to live out the adventure in order to bring about a triumphal ending.

Lasting approximately five minutes (~5 min.), “Destined for Adventure” remains melodic and tonal despite its brief and frequent visits to other keys. While designed for five players, the parts can be doubled for a full string orchestra to enjoy. It is appropriate for a wide variety of contexts, including recitals.
