For string quartet. Aaron Jay Kernis writes, "this third string quartet ('River') is a significant departure from my two earlier quartets, which looked to the distant past for form and inspiration. Instead, this new work dispenses with classical structure and influences almost completely, touching continually on processes of change and flux. At issue here are literary influences which helped shape and color the emotional tone of its five movements and prompted countless reflections on compositional process at this time in my life. Before beginning to write, I went back to a novel of the early 20th century, beloved of my mother and seemingly influential to me, Jean-Christophe, by French author Romain Rolland."
