A Dream within a Dream is a fantasia for string quartet which was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's poem of the same name. The musical characteristics were also inspired by minimalism and minimalist music. The heavy use of repetition and slow chordal changes is reflective of the nature of dreams and also aims to paint the text of the poem. Central to the composition is a paraphrase on the Gregorian chant Dies Irae. The piece can also work with a string orchestra/ensemble.
