String Quartet

for String Quartet

12'

A matter of change:

Gradual disintegration

solid - liquid - gas

This piece is about gradual change and gradual transformation. To put a more vivid imagery to it, it delineates the transition from solid to liquid to gas – the three states of matter. Texture plays an important role here, and the homogeneous sound of the string quartet creates a harmonious blend of timbre…

Or does it? Perhaps not all the time.
