Jeux de cordes (1996)

Jeux de cordes was written in 1996 for the swiss Erato Quartet. Each of the five movements of the work emphasises a particular feature or style of writing. The first movement Jeu d'accents plays with the accentuations and opposes binary and ternary rhythms. Through the delicate harmonics of the Andante des harmoniques, arises a melody shared amongst all four instruments. The third movement, Jeu sur un mode is a virtuosic piece based on one mode and its transpositions. In Chant, an eerie ghostly atmosphere is created by the melody in harmonics and its counter subject played without vibrato. The finale, Jeu d'imitation, is a follow the leader game in a strict canon form with a coda that brings the quartet to a brilliant finish.
