Rohde wins Lydian String Quartet Commission Prize, 2012

Kurt Rohde won the commission award for the Lydian String Quartet (in residence at Brandeis University) for his two pieces: Concertino for solo violin and small ensemble (which was also performed on a noon concert in 2011), and still distant, still here for large ensemble.

Sam Nichols received Honorable Mention in the contest for his piece Refuge for String Quartet, andWrack for Violin and Piano.

The ensemble received an unusually high number of submissions, and the award commissions Rohde to write a 15–30 minute work for the Lydian Quartet, for a performance in spring of 2013.
