String Quartet nº 1 - Impetuous

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

I've just posted my first string quartet, called "Impetuous".

Here's the link for it!

I was very much inspired by Villa Lobos' 6th string quartet, and wrote the first movement with it in mind. 

It's called "Impetuous" because I was trying to convey the sense of progress and continuity through rhythmic impetuosity, instead of using harmony or any other technique to do so. Therefore, the staccato sound and counterpoint/imitation was of great use.

Also, I'm currently working on the third and last movement of a Sonata for Oboe and Piano, so if you're interested in listening to it, please subscribe to my Youtube channel.

I genuinely hope you enjoy the piece, and would love to get feedback on it!

Thanks for your attention!

Best wishes, Jean.

I really like that moment at the end of measure 8. I also like the atonality in the second movement, although I think harmonically it could be explored a bit further (although I don't know if that would change what your vision for this piece was). Really like what you did at measure 98 for some reason haha that dissonance is cool. The last movement was really interesting, I don't really know how to play with dissonance so brazenly like that yet so that was cool to hear.

I get what you mean.

I've been in a very rigorous study schedule lately, so I'm experimenting with ways of exposing my intentions that are not explicited in the books. It doesn't work every time, and I think the second movement is an example of a situation in which I feel it didn't. It's a bit stale, altough it has its charm. 

Thank's for listening!

Best wishes, Jean.
