Per Nørgård THREE MINIATURES for string quartet
(string quartet no. 3)
The Three Miniatures for string quartet (composed 1959) has a consequent experimental structure that dictates every note in the three extremely short movements. Each member of the quartet thus plays his own little melody a certain (but different) number of times so that the brand new soundscopes constantly appear in spite of the unchanging parts, due to their different length.
