ArpaViva CD009: PANACEA-Three String Quartets
By Peter Vukmirovic Stevens

Panacea Quartet:

Violin I Misha Shmidt
Violin II Blayne Barnes -
Viola Mara Gearman
Cello Paige Stockley -

PANACEA - Three String Quartets, a new album by Peter Vukmirovic Stevens embodies the composer's deeply felt account of critical events of 2015-16, including the horrific terror attacks in Paris and the political upheavals in Europe and the U.S.

Stevens' new works for string quartet are emblematic in their powerful expression of emotions shared by the multitudes. Amidst all these events, music and art serve as a panacea - writes Stevens in his artist’s statement - a ballast to the unstable ground beneath our feet.

While the dramatic interactions among the four instruments in his works portray strife and discord, Peter Vukmirovic Stevens' music also reinforces us with resolve and hope for progress in this world.
