CLASSICAL OPUS no.92

Albert Huybrechts: “String Quartet no.1”

アルバート・フイブレヒツ -「弦楽四重奏曲第1番」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 18 minutes

Elegant, triste and listless first, then increasingly polarized and chugging, this irregular chamber score challenges the listener to seek, in vain, a closure.  The radial pattern of this expressionist quartet does not settle until the poignant theme returns at halftime, offering a sense of relief.

A REFLECTION

One day you finally knew

what you had to do, and began,

though the voices around you

kept shouting

their bad advice–

though the whole house

began to tremble

and you felt the old tug

at your ankles.

“Mend my life!”

each voice cried
