Still quiet, quite still is dedicated to the cellist Ryan Mahon, whom I met at the Rocky Ridge Music Center summer program in 2013 and with whom I have enjoyed a delightful correspondence. The title is the combination of lines from a poem of Ryan’s and reflects something of his contemplative nature.
