For King - who became politically active during his late teenage years in Minneapolis during the Vietnam War era, participating in labor actions and protests, and later wrote music inspired by the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa - the question of Palestine has been an issue of particular interest. It follows, then, that Free Palestine, a unified sequence of relatively brief string quartet pieces composed from May 2013 to August 2014, is to some extent politically motivated.
The Secret Quartet:
- Cornelius Dufallo (violin)
- Jennifer Choi (violins)
- Ljova Zhurbin (viola)
- Yves Dharamraj (cello)
