Hot Flush
Rather than adhering to the traditional roles of the instruments in the standard repertoire the quartet is treated as one, monochromatic, instrument.
Inspired by the scores of Lutoslawski and Penderecki, blocks of texture internally evolve before changing register or dynamic abruptly. As the intensity of the opening loses strength, these blocks of textures are cut with much thinner, linear material - almost like connecting threads.
There is a warmer passage towards the end of the piece in which the viola has a more melodic line, high in register and like a cry for help, which travels across swelling chords before the opening material dramatically resurfaces, but only for a short outburst.
