Letters To A Young Poet, composer Mark Zanters debut Navona release, presents recently commissioned chamber works for strings. The inspiration for the title track comes from the content of Rainer Maria Rilkes letters of encouragement to poet Franz X. Kappus. Themes are continued and developed in both Lament and dream (2013) for string orchestra, piano, and percussion, and Three Movements for Cello Quintet (2007). The single-movement String Quartet (2011) is described by cellist Solen Dikener as …a monumental workthat carries the listener into Zanters adventurous world.
