String Quartet No.9 Opus 3001
Aileen Sweeney


String quartets have long been acknowledged as one of the most prominent chamber ensembles in classical music. According to Wikipedia, "the string quartet has been considered a prestigious form and represents one of the true tests of the composers art." I had never written a string quartet before now. In the process of the "true test of my art," I started and quickly abandoned a grand total of eight string quartets before finally starting and sticking with this one, my magnum opus, my ninth string quartet.
