Chamber Works

The String Quartetsthird string quartet

Schafer's eleven string quartets occupy a special place in his repertoire and are considered to be among his most important works. The medium is pushed beyond traditional limits by the incorporation of spatial dislocations, movement and vocalization, but in each work the musical argument is always paramount. Although composed at different times in Schafer's career they contain many relationships and have been frequently performed together.

Recordings of the string quartets one through twelve are recorded on ATMA Classique by the Molinari Quartet.

N.B. There are parts for many of Schafer's string quartets but for some of them players play from full scores.
