Sarah Kirkland Snider The Reserved, the Reticent (2005)
Inspired by As One Put Drunk Into the Packet-Boat by John Ashbery
The summer demands and takes away too much,
But night, the reserved, the reticent, gives more than it takes.

[Mariel] Roberts handled Sarah Kirkland Snider’s “The Reserved, The Reticent” with hardly a reservation. Her rhythmic swipes dug deep into the strings, and commanded the instrument’s full range all at once. The energy relinquished in volume but never intensity as the piece moved to a conversational middle section, where the melody was glided between pizzicato and bowed statements. The opening double-stop was resounded in the concluding moments and served as the basis for a dramatically executed final statement.
Chris McGovern, The Glass,10/06/2012
…a work of impassioned, old-fashioned eloquence.
