Musicarius String Quartet

RecArt presents another Musicarius string quartet album. Incompleta presents works for string quartet, which for some reason were never completed. Each of these works is completely different, reveals a very different life situations composers, different contexts and causes of unfinished compositions. Mikolaj Zgólka (violin) says about the idea of the release: "Incompleteness brings to mind usually bad connotations. A breach of finis coronat opus principle often causes lack of symmetry of work, interferes with the expectancy and logic of a design, and finally builds a sense of its limitations. We can multiply examples of buildings that have never lived to see their final architectural shape, or the ones, which combine different styles compiled over the centuries; and that does not always produce indisputably successful result. Studying of biographies of prominent composers stirs speculations: what else and how would Mozart, Pergolesi, Schubertwrite if the Great Director did not remove them from the stage of life so early? How would their style develop, what measures would they apply and how many works - probably remarkable ones -would have been created if they could reach their venerable years? The Incompleta album presents the works for a string quartet, which were, for some reason, never finished. Each of these works is completely different and reveals quite varied life situations of composers, different contexts and causes of the unfinished pieces."
