Quatuor pour les jeunes. 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 (Scènes 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) (Lenfant espiègle/The Mischievous Child).
