Music For Three Stringed Instruments (1977)

Netherlands String Trio
Josje ter Haar, violin
Susanna van Els, viola
Job ter Haar, cello

Rihm's Music For Three Stringed Instruments, written in 1977, is an ideal work through which to approach him. It is a work which, at an early stage in his career, brought together all his characteristics. During the work's sixty minutes one must concentrate on the happenings as they occur, prepared at every moment for unexpected incidents which given no clue as to what will happen next, uninfluenced by the question of whether this work is oversized three-movement string trio or a seven-movement suite, or whether there are any criteria according to which its tonal signals can be captured in traditional "forms".
