Quartet (2012)

I. Vivace
II. Intermezzo
III. Passacaglia

Quartet for flute, clarinet, horn and harpsichord was written in 2012, during my studies at the Iceland Academy of the Arts.

It was written as an experiment in mixing different styles, forms and techniques, such as neo-baroque counterpoint, twelve-tone techniques, indian rhythms and isorhythms.
