2001 release. Among contemporary composers, Horatiu Radulescu is one who has something essential to express about the enigma of time: multi-layered lines of events, their structuring, perception and potential for poetic-religious message are -- together with the development of spectral composition -- among his central artistic concerns. "String quartet op. 33" fully demonstrates Radulescu's formal invention and his powerful expressiveness. During the 49 minutes of the work, two macro-forms -- two time-worlds overlap and intersect: that of the central string quartet and that of the eight surrounding quartets. In these surrounding eight quartets, the composer deliberately creates a lively, seemingly unordered series of moments of meditative quietness, of sudden improvised actions and of collective eruptions of primal force. Performed by the Arditti String Quartet.
