Description of Style

[In the 'Streichquartett Nr. 1'] simple formulas develop without dissonant hardening into spacious vibrations and relaxed, loose layers. The central allegro con brio shows significant polyphonic approaches, imitation moments to the point of a fugato in which a twelve-tone theme is guided by all four voices and dissolved again in a kind of mirror. However, the formal development appears to be consistently disturbed by short reciter irregularities, so that a hinted motoric skilled sequence no longer has any effect.
