It is passionately dedicated to the music of the Second Viennese School and, based on its research, has decided that the time is ripe to take the perception of this music in a new direction, on the path of rediscovery and recapture not only of its modernity but also of its connections to the past.
For this reason, the musicians have initiated a project to record the complete string quartet works of the Second Viennese School, to place them in a historical context and to combine them with unusual works by other composers. Their first production is called Wien 1905-1910 and contains music by Webern, Schoenberg and Berg: Webern’s Slow Movement, Schoenberg’s String Quartet no.2 with mezzo-soprano (as originally intended!) and Berg’s Opus 3.
This approach captures a completely different palette of sounds and reveals a romantic language and nuances that are often overlooked in sometimes strictly modern string quartets with their metal strings. As a result, accessing these works is less of a challenge for the listener.
