Koehne Quartett © Styriarte, Skye Kiss

»Here« by the young American composer and clarinet player, Christine Burke, is a collection of sounds which the players can choose at random. The catchy »String Quartet Exercises« of Christian Wolff’s (see also 03./04./09. November) are 40 years old. Vienna-born composer Johannes Kretz has just returned from a lengthy stay in India with his ‹rotatable›string quartet »Free Dimensions« in tow. All of these pieces have one thing in common: they demand unsual decisions and behaviour from a string quartet. They are therefore the ideal vehicle for the Koehne Quartet founded by Joanna Lewis in Vienna in 1987.
