String Quartet No. 1

(2009)

String Quartet No. 1 is an attempt to add "a few words" to the story of a string quartet, considered by some to be the most difficult musical form that exists. The devil is as terrible as it is painted.

 

The piece was written in the winter of 2008/2009, commissioned by the Silesian Quartet, for the 3rd NOSPR Premiere Festival in Katowice.
