American Pilgrimage

The Quartet premièred Robert Sirota's American Pilgrimage in September 2016. According to the composer, he conceived American Pilgrimage as a companion piece to his first string quartet, Triptych, written in 2002 as an impassioned response to the 9/11 tragedy. “American Pilgrimage,” he says, “is a celebration of the beauty, pathos, and variety of both our geography and culture.”
