Gondola (String Quartet No. 4)

Linda Catlin Smith

Gondola (String Quartet No. 4) has been performed in Aberdeen, Albi, Birmingham, Chicago, Guanajuato, Harrington, Huddersfield, London, Montréal, Ottawa and Stockholm…

Gondola is my fourth string quartet. In this work I was drawn to the not-quite-unison melody — the slightly unravelled line — and to quietly rocking chords. The title loosely refers to its slight undulation or floating qualities — a subtle motion or disturbance of the surface, like trailing the hand in water. This piece was commissioned by the Del Sol String Quartet, through the Canada Council for the Arts.
