Description: A Small Boat of Stars, composed in 2016 is a diminutive diptych duo for violin and cello, written in memoriam for composer Stephen R. Gerber and commissioned by String Poet. The two movements, each based on a String Poet work, evoke the elegiac essence of the words rather than setting them literally and honor the memory of a beloved colleague, gone too soon and too suddenly.
