In recording these quartets for strings, the Ensemble Syntonia were the preoccupied with an authenticity sought by the composer and were fortunate to work with him and complete this work just weeks before his untimely death. This work of more than 50 minutes can be connected with a private diary, where the composer delivers his vision of the world to us, very marked by its Jewish origins of Central Europe.
