WorksEpilog for string quintet
Geste zu Vedova for string quartet
String Quartet (1968)
String Quartet in G minor
Jens Peter Maintz (cello)
Rihm composed the String Quartet in G minor as a 14-yearold schoolboy. The youthful work displays a close proximity to early Beethoven. Stylistically, this quartet also shows many similarities to the String Quartet 1968 written a few years later.
The Epilog for string quintet which forges a link with the late works of Schubert was composed 45 years later. Despite its affinity with Schubert’s Romanticism, the composition is clearly contemporary in style, not least due to its advanced playing techniques.
Geste zu Vedova is a homage to the Venezuelan artist Emilio Vedova (1919–2006). This music is a percussive and block-like reaction to the kinesis and energy of the artist’s creative approach to his works that had such a profound impression on Rihm.
