Description
Right at the beginning, this funny encore piece has the string quartet imitate the squawking horn of a car from 1901. The following polyrhythmic and somewhat slow chorale may suggest that Chekhov actually did not make his decision easy for himself…
'Encore' is dedicated to Peter Eötvös' Hungarian fellow composer and master of aphorism, György Kurtág, on the occasion of his 80th birthday.
