ArtistsThe Borusan Quartet
The world of theatre is the background to the Glass. The source of this Quartet was a 1983 dramatisation of Samuel Beckett's prose poem ‘Company’.
Traditional music from the Borusan Quartet’s homeland and in particular Anatolia is to be found in the String Quartet No.2 ‘The Untold’ by Turkish composer Hasan Ucarsu. It draws on Turkish folk music and traditions, especially the festival of ‘Hidrelliz’ which celebrates the coming of Summer. The songs of Neset Ertas were in the composer’s mind when writing this quartet, especially in the second movement. Rhythmically complex, it is a colourful and dramatic work influenced by the music of the composer’s country in the same way as Hungarian folk music colours Bartok’s Quartets and Balkar and Kabardinian folk music does in Prokofiev’s F major Quartet. Born in 1965, Hasan Ucarsu studied in Turkey with Ahmed Adnam Saygun and then in the USA with George Crumb.
