Schickele's new piano quartet was written for the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival (northwest of Seattle), and would have been his very first piano quartet - except that he had forgotten an earlier, unfinished composition. Happily, an unrelated search uncovered the earlier quartet, and Schickele set about cutting, reworking, and re-composing to create Music for Orcas Island. The quartet consists of four complementary movements: I. Spring Sunshine; II. Rainy, with Fog; III. Lively; and IV. Low-lying Clouds. For intermediate to advanced performers. Duration: 13'.
