For a commission by the Cheswatyr Foundation for the Borromeo String Quartet, Matheson created a three-movement work on the construct of the Borromean rings - "a chain of rings in which all rings are connected as a unit, but in which no two individual rings are connected." In this concept, each individual element is every bit as important and essential as the whole, and the whole collapses if any link in the chain is taken away. The work was premiered by the Borromeo String Quartet with Judith Gordon (piano). For advanced performers.
