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').
