String Quartet. Composed for the Messerkvartetten of Copenhagen, the music was inspired by the events of the opening months of the First World War (1914-1918). It seeks to depict on an emotional level three of the countless episodes that set the stage for the four-year struggle that lay ahead. The movements are titled August 1914, The Church of St. Nicholas at Dixmude, and The Angels of Mons, respectively.
