Work introduction

My String Quartet No. 2 – a commission by the Wiener Konzerthaus for the Hagen Quartet – combines tonal, apparently historicising sound elements with microtonal adjustments, temporal expansions and compressions and a sometimes virtuoso, flickering sound picture. Tradition shines through again and again, but it appears as something lost, distant, clouded. (Georg Friedrich Haas)
