Another signature work by Part is Summa, available in several arrangements, and finally now arranged for string quartet. Listeners describe the push and pull of the strings, a birth of Spring, the motion of a train. In truth, Part's music frees the mind to explore such imagery, which may account for his ever-growing popularity. For intermediate to advanced.
