Streichquartett 4

Jürg Frey

Streichquartett 4 has been performed in Berlin, Montréal and Oslo…

My music is slow, sometimes static, often delicately shifting between standstill and movement. And yet, after more than an hour, this music has arrived at another place.

Standstill, little happens, — it is this atmosphere from which my music emerges and to which it always returns. Sometimes it just stays there. This is my world.

But on it went, leave it behind, never return to it. Without spectacle, without effort, simply taking a step into the next section.
