Programme Notes

This one-movement string quartet is raw and “in your face”. Inspired by hard rock, thrash, and metal, it mimics musical characteristics most often found in these genres. From thick textured orchestration, to “crunchy” riffs, to melodic shrieks, the four instrumentalists constantly push the intensity envelope to the limits.
