Morton Feldman’s Structures played with beautiful sounds and incredible precision. Restful in what it is, with hints of what was to come in the late string quartets, yet sounding surprisingly up-to-date for a piece that was composed in 1951.

Cenk Ergün’s Sonare is the kind of piece where one can’t quite figure out how it’s done, even though the material seems clear enough on the surface. How is it that an unamplified string quartet can produce so much sound?

Here’s an interview on how it came about.
