Scored for flute, clarinet, cello, and piano, Quest is a journey of moral character in three short movements. The first movement, “For Indulgence,” is characterized by swaying between conflicting rhythms in a minor mode to represent selfishness and greed. The second movement, “For Subsistence,” slowly transforms melodic fragments to depict harsh conditions and survival through the torments of humankind. The third movement, “For Liberation,” combines the earlier elements of character with a new one, inspiring allies to rise above miserable conditions and eventually, celebrate freedom from affliction.
