Composed by John Craton. Chamber music. A quartet for the young, playable by an intermediate level ensemble. Contemporary. Score and parts. Duration 13 minutes. Wolfhead Music #WM103. Published by Wolfhead Music (WF.WM103).

Composed for Megan Hamer and dedicated to Dutch violinist Anahi Oraison, this string quartet was written for and about young people. Almost entirely in 1st-3rd positions, it nevertheless offers various technical challenges for the performers. Each of the three movements depicts aspects of youth: I. Allegro--Andante--Allegro ("Scenes de la jeune vie"/"Scenes of Young Life"); II. Adagio ("Un portrait de Jodelle Ferland"/"A Portrait of [child actress] Jodelle Ferland"); III. Allegro (Gigue) ("L'enfant espiegle"/"The Mischievous Child").
