Description
This Quartet ends a series of five works recently completed by Kirchner, who is a trained string player. The movement titles themselves, inspired by Shakespeare’s “Tempest”, give an idea of the high emotional content of the music, which is full of marked contrasts:
Prospero’s Spell – Ariel’s Song (Air) – Caliban’s Song (Earth) – Prospero’s Return
