Product Description

Wertschopfung was commissioned by David Blake Werts and Charity Nicole Burnette for their wedding in September of 2006. Accordingly, the composer worked the musical letters of both names into the fabric of the piece, notably at the beginning and ending, as well as several points along the way. The name of the work is derived from their surname, “Werts,” the German term meaning “creation of value.” This title seemed appropriate to the composer in the fact that the Werts family was being created at their wedding ceremony. The subtitle of the work is “Festive wedding postlude music for string quartet,” and indeed the composer sought to create a festive mood, given the occasion for which the piece was composed.

Wertschopfung has been recorded by the Calvin Quartet on Enharmonic Records ENCD10-018.
