Georg Friedrich Haas: “In iij. Noct.” (String Quartet No. 3)
As an epilogue to the styriarte’s “Romantic Night”, the young Pacific Quartet from Vienna performs Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas’s String Quartet No. 3 of 2001. Performed in total darkness, this work evokes fantastic nocturnal sounds, inspired by Carlo Gesualdo’s unsettling Tenebrae motets of 1613.
* Pronounce: In tertia nocte (In the third night)
