String Quartet Movement in E Flat for Louis Swift by Edward Giles Brown

In 1999 I was asked to write a string piece in honor of Dr. Louis Swift, who was retiring as the Dean of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Kentucky. This is a live recording of the piece being performed at Dr. Swift’s retirement ceremony by the Cypress String Quartet on April 5th, 1999.
I’m particularly proud of the fugue. I’m also quite happy because Dr. Swift very much enjoyed the piece and told me it was the best gift that anyone had ever given him.
