Notes on this piece
The Second String Quartet is a three-movement composition based primarily on texture transformation. In order for this to be achieved, several approaches are demonstrated, including harmonic permutation, melodic patterns, fluctuation of dynamics and extended playing techniques. The first movement is characterized by chord progressions, whereas the major textural characteristic of the second movement is timbre transformation on a sustained pitch (D). Throughout the movement the performers execute transmissions between bow positions and also different levels of bow pressure. Texture transformation results from the plethoric vertical juxtaposition of bow techniques against a background of fluctuating dynamics. Whereas timbre sonorities are the major structural components of the second movement, in the third movement the burden of development is carried primarily by overlapping melodic patterns, interrupted periodically by sff attacks and the sustained pitches of the opening. The patterns comprise individual melodic lines which coincide vertically in specific points throughout the movement. The alteration between individual lines and their convergence demonstrates thinning-thickening texture transformation.
