String of Rope - String Quartet VI (2019)

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

This is a recent experimental showing my exploration in various styles. There are 3 movements:

I. Allegro Moderato [5' 20"]
II. Adagio [6' 48"]
III. Vivace [4' 02"]

The first movement adopts the 12-tone system (The tone series is shown in the score in a table).

The second movement explores the use of polytonality.

Hope you enjoy the music and I appreciate your comments:)

Apart from the result, it seems you don't follow the main rule in dodecaphony: avoiding parallel octaves. This is difficult when writing atonal polyphony.

I particularly like the adagio.

@Luis Hernández Thank you:) Glad to hear that you love it. This work I have spent more time structurally, i.e. on single-motif development.

I think I can do that in the second and third movement, but I am having a hard time in the first movement.
