The next work we'll hear will be Isaac number us a string quartet. I think number off was born in 1912. He received his early music education at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. He studied composition with Stefan vocal at present he is professor of music at State University of New York at Stony Brook. Of his string quartet. Mr. number off says quote by contemporary criteria this is an old fashioned work. The comment of a program annotator of just a few years ago referring to various effects in this quartet is coming in the same package with computer challenging rhythmic divisions seems exaggerated in the light of what might already be considered common practice procedures. The Quartet is not typically structured and formalized as events know tific derivations and harmonic coincidences are hard sought after. It was written about 15 years ago at a time when I was interested in but not a disciple of 12 tone technique. I'm going to CLI it aims at a polarization of certain pitch
groupings derive from the possibilities inherent in chromaticism the resulting tonality is I believe similar in spirit but not in actuality to the classical concept members of the string quartet. Returning to the stage no. Mr number of then very kindly adds quote It is all too common to be world the trials of the modern composer and frequently with justice but the recognition is given to the commitment and dedication of those instrumentalists who prepare a work for performance.
