The Road to Damascus

The Road to Damascus

String Quartet
Duration: 8:40

“Road to Damascus performed by the Amernet String Quartet is dark and moody, full of tension and conflict. It’s a highlight on an engaging album.”
~Anya Wassenberg, NuMusic/Classical

The Road to Damascus (2010) takes on the concept of the transformation of dissonance.  Among the roughness and the ruckus of the majority of the work are shimmering moments of beauty.  While these are brief, like Paul’s experience on the road to Damascus, they also have the power to profoundly affect the overall meaning of the work.  The Road to Damascus was written for the Caravel String Quartet.
