Arditti Quartet © Markus Sepperer

The string quartet encapsulates the artistic choice of reduced musical means. If we don't give into the temptation of grand gestures when it comes to virtuoso musicians of the class of the Arditti Quartet, the possibility for music en miniature can be breathtaking. The minimalistic third movement of Ruth Crawford Seeger's quartet from 1931 is a stroke of genius. Clara Iannotta dives into an imagined »Deep-sea landscape, the deepest level of the ocean where constant pressure and incessant motion seem to create time standing still«. Younghi Pagh-Paan wrote her first string quartet at the age of 71, taking her inspiration from a quotation by the French philosopher and mystic Simone Weil: »Waves. Whole and parts – Same and Other – Horizon in mid-ocean. We are encircled by our own vision.« Klaus Lang's Fourth String Quartet stands for a moment of return to very simple interval structures. By placing the musicians next to each and not too far apart, he opens up a sort of widescreen canvas for new sound spaces.
