Concerto For String Quartet And Orchestra
This work is a free adaptation of a Handel Concerto Grosso, the only one of that composer’s Opus Six collection that does not have a solo concertino (small group of soloists contrasting with the larger orchestra). Here the composer provides the solo forces in the form of a String Quartet.

Notenbuch Edition Wilhelm Hansen AS

Programme Note
During the composition of my tenth string quartet a flower-name, høst-tidløs, came to my mind – and it would not me leave again. [høsttidløs is actually autumn crocus in English, but the composer prefers harvest-timeless, to maintain some of the associations of the Danish flower-name, red.]

The paradoxical union of a seasonal time (harvest) and no-time-at-all was a good fit to the sections of the work that I had composed at that time, and I decided to tentatively stick to that title for the work-in-progress, and now, having finished the piece, I can say that is is still a fitting title – and it stands. Enough about the title, I will go on to describe the music, a somewhat more precarious project.

My tenth string quartet is probably the most basic string quartet that I have composed; melodically – and in sound – it employs the naturally based overtones and undertones* (perceived at major and minor, respectively), and rhythmically it is based on growth, on the principles of the Golden Section, and the structure itself contrasts abundance and exuberance with sections of immobility and contemplation.

However, Melos, melody, is definitely the dominating aspect of my STRING QUARTET NO. 10; behind even the most rhythmically complex or pure sonoric sections lies a firm – if hidden – basis of melodic or polyphonic ideas.

The work was composed in 2004-2005 for the Kroger Quartet.

String Quartet No.1
There are two primary ideas behind this composition, the first being to create and almost orchestral chamber music, the idea for this coming from a performance of the Grosse Fuge performed by the Arditti Quartet. The second idea was to excercise the impressive and oppresive history of the string quartet by making the work a compendium of quotations from quartet repertoire.

Influence from Schoenberg can be heard in chromatic, harmonic sequences and modal/diatonic varioations are also actively displayed within the piece. The quartet is written with amplification in mind and it is the composer’s preference that it is performed in this way. String Quartet No.1 is dedicated to the memory of Thurston Dart. It was commissioned by the Arditti Quartet and first performed by them on 23 September 1985, Warsaw. Duration 26 minutes. Instrumental parts are available on sale.
