"Aversa's string quartet, Movement, was a clear crowd-pleaser, with an ethereal tonality that floated along a pizzicato pulse, both of which were developed more through the string players' articulation than form, from pizzicato to arco, and a conclusive return the echoing, delicate pizzicato from the beginning."
