String Quartet | Cuarteto de Cuerdas
PDF MUSIC Instrumentation: violin 1, violin 2, viola, cello Level: Intermediate / Advanced Duration: 8 min. File size: 19.6 MB ------------------------ The "String Quartet" was written in May 2012 in Odessa, Ukraine. It consists of three elements that are intertwined with the idea of a single theme: a tribute to life. The first element is about the struggle, tenacity and surrender to the meaning of life: "Time is one of the enemies in this struggle; it’s like an ostinato through which travels the life" The second element is contrasting to the first, emotional and pure, calm and desperate: "I resign myself to my destiny, but there is still something pending ..." The third element: struggle, resignation and peace: "It must be difficult to say goodbye to the loved ones, you want to continue living, you want to continue fighting, you want to be with them ... you have to let them go and you resign yourself to your destiny. The moment arrives and you feel the peace; you no longer resign yourself, but accept it. And you lose yourself in the eternal silence" Dedicated to my teacher, colleague and friend Oleg Shkarpitniy.
