With the present edition one of the major pioneers of microtonal composition in the 20th century receives an extensive and long time overdue tribute: Czech composer Alois Hába (1893-73) systematically used tones located in between the chromatic steps regularly being used in occidental music.
In his manifold contributions to the leading genre of string quartet, completely documented in this edition of four CDs, Hába splits the whole tone into regular halftones, as well as into quarter, fifth and sixth tones. The intriguing musical effects resulting from this method were realized by Frankfurt-based Hába-Quartet in a congenial way.
A listening adventure 'par excellence’!
