Programme Note
Karl Aage Rasmussen Solos and Shadows (1983)
Solos and Shadows (composed in Rome, 1983) is about the individual and the mass, the melody and the chorus or - in a memorable phrase of the composer - "whispers and shouts"; and it's about how these opposing entities can deceptively change about, the one becoming the other. Throughout most of the quartet there are constant changes - or rater, interruptions of mood, colour and tempo; before a final section which, Beethoven-style carries the music away in a breathlessly fast tempo.
