Quick Overview

Romanza is a revised version of the second movement from Godfrey’s String Quartet No. 1 with adaptations allowing the movement to stand alone as a separate composition. As its title reflects, this work can be heard as an extended aria for string quartet or string orchestra, with an intimately personal undercurrent. Godfrey has significantly refined and clarified Romanza since its main theme and harmonization first came to mind almost forty years ago. The Cassatt String Quartet first performed this piece in October 2002 at the Mannes College of Music in New York City.
