Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

String Quartet no. 6 KV 159

Garth Knox

Secret Letters (Dutch premiere)

Leoš Janáček

String Quartet no. 2

Garth Knox, former violist of the Arditti Quartet, has created Secret Letters as a four-part string quartet for the Marmen Quartet. Each part is a musical letter from one member of the quartet to the other three, in which that player writes their wish list for a new quartet. The comments of the colleagues trigger increasingly heated discussions. Janáček’s Second String Quartet also refers to letters, and the sixteen-year-old Mozart composed his sixth quartet in Milan – he surely wrote home about it.

The Selected by series offers great works – next to each other, opposite each other; connected or contrasting with each other. In an hour, you hear the full range of the string quartet: all times, styles, sounds, and colors.
