Moss, Piotr

String Quartet no.4 'Chagall'


Jadwiga Rappe (contralto)
Opium String Quartet


Piotr Moss – a former student of Nadia Boulanger – brings into the 21st century a neoclassical legacy with its calligraphic understanding of style, its attention to harmonic design and its penchant for simultaneously crystalline and hybrid forms.

The music of the 'Chagall' quartet is not an illustration of the artist’s paintings in a literal sense. Instead it evokes their atmosphere, themes and rhythms. It was necessary for the work to contain many familiar and repetitive motifs from the artist’s creative output, such as, for example, a pair of lovers, a circus, war or events from the life of Russian Jews.
