Quick Overview

Primosch's String Quartet No. 3 sets out as a theme and variations, but a sudden Fantasia finds its way into the mix. Upon returning to another variation, we find elements of the Fantasia now appearing, leading to a viola cadenza and the ultimate unison re-statement of a slow variation. Composed for the Ying Quartet and commissioned by the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, String Quartet No. 3 had its premiere in 1999. For advanced performers. Dur.: 20'
