Green Sneakers is a work for solo baritone voice with string quartet from the critically acclaimed Ricky Ian Gordon. Grown from a cycle of poems dedicated to the composer's departed love, Green Sneakers is a raw and touching ode to the life he shared and the process of grief. The string quartet narrates the story as much as the baritone voice, creating a mini-opera, complete with an empty chair, employed as a prop, and a piano played by the singer at the conclusion. According to Gordon, "I suppose I wanted to end the piece with not only a lullaby, but a celebration of what we had together." String quartet parts are available on rental, and the study score is available separately (411411210).
