A Walk In The Woods, composed on 25th November 2003, is a light-hearted piece and it came about after listening to the soundtracks of Cinema Paradiso. When writing it, I had the image of a couple strolling in the woods while on vacation. Sunlight was steaming in between the trees, and the couple was enjoying the smell of wild flowers and sounds of birds and insects. It is the 1st movement of On Vacation, a set of 4 short pieces for string quartet.
