C'est une œuvre splendide que j'ai découvert par hasard et que je réécoute fréquemment depuis que je l'ai reçu. J'attends avec impatience une autre œuvre que j'ai commandée par internet du même auteur.

Le vingtième siècle a vu la composition de plusieurs cycles de Quatuors à cordes de très grande qualité, depuis ceux d'Arnold Schönberg (1874-1951) à ceux de Nicola Bacri (né en 1961), en passant par ceux de Béla Bartok (1881-1945), de Nikolaï Miaskovsky (1881-1950), d'Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959), de Darius Milhaud (1892-1974), de Paul Hindemith (1895-1963), d'Alexandre Tansman (1897-1986), de Vissarion Chebaline (1902-1963), de Dmitri Chostakovitch (1906-1975) bien sûr, mais aussi d'Elliott Carter (né en 1908), de David Diamond (1915-2005), de George Rochberg (1918-2005), de Mieczysaw Weinberg (1919-1996), de Ned Rorem (né en 1923), de Boris Tchaikovsky (1925-1996), d'Hans Werner Henze (né en 1926), d'Alfred Schnittke (1934-1998), ou bien encore de Wolfgang Rihm (né en 1952), sans compter de nombreux chef-d'oeuvres isolés. L'ensemble des Quatuors à cordes que nous a laissé Péteris Vasks (né en 1946) est l'un de plus importants parmi ceux-ci.

HASH(0x8f55536c) étoiles sur 5 Vasks voices compassion at the end of a brutal century 31 octobre 2004
Par Autonomeus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The Kronos Quartet continues its devotion to contemporary works by Eastern European composers with this release. Lyrical and elegiac, the 4th String Quartet by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks is a meditation on the brutality and suffering of the 20th century. Commissioned for Kronos, it was first performed in May of 2000.

It is a five-movement work of about 30 minutes, and while not highly original, it has excellent models. Vasks declares that the second and fourth movements, Toccata I and Toccata II, are "in a spirit close to that of Shostakovich's style" -- "aggressive, and at times, ironic." This is a notable departure for Vasks, who is not known for anything dissonant or angry. These movements remind me specifically of Shostakovich's famous 8th Quartet, a work full of rage and sorrow dedicated to "the victims of war and fascism," and thought by many to be an indictment of Stalin as well (recorded by Kronos on BLACK ANGELS -- see my review). The first, third and fifth movements (Elegy, Chorale, and Meditation) are in the style that Vasks is known for, influenced by the "holy minimalism" of Part and Gorecki, with Latvian folksong motifs and romantic gestures that some might find to be overly ripe. He utilizes glissandos, seemingly representing movements up and down between the Earth to Heaven, which echo the powerful works of Sofia Gubaidulina. And Vasks draws on yet another influence -- the climax of the central Chorale parallels the well-known climax of Barber's "Adagio." The closing Meditation, the longest movement at 11:35, features a long, lovely solo for David Harrington's violin. This passage beautifully expresses the feeling of COMPASSION.

Vasks says of his 4th Quartet, "[t]here has been so much bloodshed and destruction, and yet love's power and idealism have helped keep the world in balance." Utilizing the recognizable works by Barber and Shostakovich, both emotionally direct and powerful works, couldn't make more sense. Vasks may not be the most original of contemporary composers, but he knows how to work with existing materials and create music that is accessible and moving.

(Upon listening again, I am not as impressed as I was initially, and so I have changed my rating to three stars. However, many listeners may find this to be quite moving, especially those unfamiliar with Vasks's influences.)

Peteris Vasks was new to us and a chance encounter. Well worth the money. Wonderfully performed and recorded, it soars and urges our emotions through a wide range. Technically sound and marvelous compositions, quite a find!

HASH(0x8f5557f8) étoiles sur 5 WOW!!!!!! 24 août 2003
Par Jacob Goddard - Publié sur Amazon.com

I saw the Kronos Quartet perform this work in August of 2002 and I was completely BLOWN away. It is a work that is reminiscent of the string quartets of Terry Riley and of Samuel Barber's masterful "Adagio for Strings". I immediately emailed the quartet to see if they were going to release a recording of it and I was told they had one in the works. This is it, and to this day it melts me. The fifth movement, titled "meditation", is especially beautiful. Buy it. See for yourself. You will not regret it.

HASH(0x8f555bc4) étoiles sur 5 A secret door from Baltic Avenue to Boardwalk 22 octobre 2007
Par Joseph Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Growing up in downtown Winnipeg during the 1950s I was part of hordes of other children, most of them unruly, who had a lot of time on their hands during the long two-month summer holidays which in relative time were actually two centuries long. With the temperature being 95F outside with humidity and squadrons of vicious mosquitoes lurking in the un-mowed grass, the more clever children, like me, spent our time indoors rotting our teeth by consuming chocolate in various forms washed down with uncounted 16 oz. Coca Colas, and playing games like Monopoly. Little did we know that we were being brainwashed into buying into a virulent form of capitalism instead of playing a harmless children's game. The point of all this is that on the Monopoly board the cheapest and most scorned of properties were Mediterranean and Baltic Avenues. Was this fair? I am here to tell you that a lot of the best new classical music is being composed and performed in the Baltic area by Estonian, Latvian and Ukrainian artists. Here is an example. It is Peteris Vasks' String Quartet No. 4 performed by the brilliant and eclectic Kronos Quartet.
This is an amazing work. There are two spiky discordant movements (Toccata I and Toccata II) along with more introspective movements, including the final movement, Meditation, which is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever heard -strange, nostalgic, and very moving. It takes me to places, other worldly places, better places. Even though I am usually a complaining, cynical, malcontent, fatalistic pseudo-gnostic, listening to the fifth movement (Meditation) somehow gives me hope that all is not lost. Think of it as a message from a better world -one you used to live in and may be able to go back to some day.

Par David Zimmer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I agree with the comments that the release of this CD and the Berg CD separately is very irritating, however I would not want that to take away from the fact that this is a truly great piece of music and a beautiful recording. While it may be somewhat irritating to have to buy a CD with half an hour of music on it, if you are going to do that, I would highly recommend this one.
