About this Recording

MAMLOK, U.: String Quartet No. 1 / Polyphony No. 1 / Confluences / 2000 Notes / Rhapsody (Spectrum Concerts Berlin, Armida Quartet)

Ursula Mamlok lived for many years in New York before returning to Berlin, the city of her birth, in her eighties. Featuring a conspectus of her much-admired chamber music, this recording is of the concert given in the city’s prestigious Philharmonie in celebration of her ninetieth birthday. Mamlok herself has said: ‘My main concern is that the music should convey the various emotions in it with clarity and conviction. It interests me to accomplish this with a minimum of material, transforming it in such multiple ways so as to give the impression of ever-new ideas that are like the flowers of a plant, all related yet each one different.’
