2011 – A year of string quartets – The list

So this time last year I decided that I’d listen to a different string quartet every day of the year. Over 500 quartets later I think I came close to the mark. The rules of engagement were basically that the music had to be for string quartet (2 violins, viola and cello). Of course it starts to get nebulous in the 20th century as quartets are written to include ‘extras’ – voice, tape loops, unusual instruments, electronica and electric strings. For the most part I haven’t included these with a few important exceptions – Steve Reich, Tan Dun, etc. I didn’t post everyday and did miss some days with catch-ups later. I also didn’t post everything I listened to and some of the posts got lost in the twitterverse.

How did I listen? Most involved 20 minutes after work with the stereo and just listening. Many were listened too more than once and in most circumstances, as I was listening to CDs/albums I just left the music on. Some was backgorund music and some was commuting music.

The question is “why to have botherered”? This was immersion therapy and what one starts to hear when one listens to almost the entire canon is connections. I’m not somebody with a ‘photographic’ memory for music but listening this way one starts to make the links and hear similarities, themes and what seems to be the ubiquitous quotations of Beethoven and Shostakovich. One of the other great things is that by listening to everything even the real outliers fall into place. There is no doubt that when confronted by a late 20th century piece the naive listener will have trouble appreciating the music – it will be noise. If however the listener knows what comes before it all makes sense.

Highlights have been Morton Feldman’s second quartet – several hours worth, the simple discovery of new sounds and composrs and of course re-listening to the masters – the Beethoven, Shostakovich and Bartok cycles. Also exciting was to be followed on twitter by Benet Casablancas, one of the composers I posted. It must be gratifying for a living composer to know that somebody buys and listens to their recordings. Also exciting was to find the range of composers – whilst there are a lot of guys called Hans there were also men and women from all sorts of geographical backgorunds sharing a common passion.

Today I’ll listen to some frippery transcribed for christmas and the new year by Vitamin String Quartet and plot the plan for 2012 – listening based on the books by Alex Ross “The Rest is Noise” and “Listen to This”.

For those who are interested here is a list of quartets you might want to listen to:
