Gestalt X

Frederik Neyrinck

Gestalt X has been performed in ’s-Hertogenbosch, Leuven, Montréal and Vancouver…

Gestalt X is the tenth and last work in the series Gestalt. As in the other works in the cycle, minor manipulations are made in the positioning to achieve different relationships between the instruments. As a result, the traditional string quartet formation is altered into a work for quasi-solo viola, accompanied by two violins and a cello part as a shadow voice, given that the cellist sits with his or her back to the audience. The work constantly refers to the other works in the series. In fact, this quartet is a collection of twelve short echoes in which new relationships between the instruments are continually sought and where the quasi-solo viola is continually given a different role to play.
