"To me, String Quartet No. 2 evokes the magic of the mountains, the woods and the lakes on the spectacular promontory at Bellagio, on Lake Como, where I composed most of the work when I was a resident at the Rockefeller Foundation's Villa Serbelloni. I have tried to express the feeling of that time and place."
