Description: Anyone slightly surprised that Xenakis wrote this much for string quartet should remember how much of his orchestral music depends on massed strings. The computer-generated ST/4 (1956-62) pushes the limits of what is possible on four instruments while the other three works are much later: Tetras (1983), Tetora (1990) - both for the Arditti Quartet - and 1994's Ergma for the Mondriaan Quartet. All provide sounds you didn't know a string quartet would make... we leave more detailed descriptions to you and your reading of the notes. JACK Quartet.
