||Russell Scarbrough's 7-minute quartet is a musical response to Galileo's theory of heavenly motion, "Left to their own devices things tend to move in circles." In light of Newton having proven Galileo incorrect, the composer has written, "...there is an element of irony in this title, which provides some insight into the music. It struck me as such a beautiful and lyrical thought. I couldn't resist the impulse to spend a few minutes reflecting on it with notes and rhythms." ...In Circles was premiered at the 2017 NFA Convention by Tereasa Payne, Kathryn Scarbrough, Ali Ryerson, and Chris Potter.
