The John Cage String Quartet Winter Music Quartet in Four Parts is based partly on the Indian view of the seasons, in which the four seasons—spring, summer, autumn and winter—are associated each with a particular force—those of creation, preservation, destruction and quiescence.

The parts and The Russell Brothers The Party Scene corresponding seasons are as follows: [1]. The general John Cage String Quartet Winter Music and flatness of sound in the quartet may be an expression of tranquility, the uniting emotion of the nine permanent emotions of the Rasa aesthetic, which Cage explored earlier in Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano.

Another aspect of composition which Cage used earlier was the use Paolo Ormi Tastiere counterpoint: the third movement uses a canon for a single melodic line, which repeats itself going backward, in a slightly rhythmically altered form, to the beginning.

To compose the quartet Cage used a new technique, which consisted of dealing with fixed sonorities, or chords. This does not mean that the music is backward looking or derivative. Cage's integrity and originality are unassailable. The compositional methods used in String Quartet in Four Parts are not lifted from a historical study of older methods of writing music.

They are a reaction to his own artistic directions, and upon closer comparisons to instrumental music from the early Renaissance, Cage's work is completely different. If it were presented to composers or listeners of that day, they would not regard it as comparable to music of their times.

The four movements of the quartet are divided into the seasons. The second movement concerns autumn in New York. The third movement is a canon in winter, and the forth movement is a spring John Cage String Quartet Winter Music.

Canons and quodlibets are sort of opposites, insofar as canons are staggered entries of the same John Cage String Quartet Winter Music while quodlibets juxtapose themes of different works for a humorous effect. String Quartet in Four Parts covers a lot of ground in this manner, combining titles that are fanciful with titles that are descriptive. Cage finds deceptively simple ways to fire the imagination with this work, and it is an engaging pleasure to hear. It is not a musical stunt that underlines a concept, although if it does, the quartet itself is nonetheless truly beautiful.

    Mar 21,  · In addition to intimacy, the string quartet is a medium capable of remarkable levels of austerity. It’s no surprise, then, that John Cage turned to the quartet as the vehicle for a work in which, “without actually using silence, I should like to praise it” (as Cage wrote to his parents, prior to starting the piece). A few years earlier, in , Cage had composed his first orchestral.

    John Cage wrote String Quartet in Four Parts () with the idea of writing a work that reflected the opposite approach he was taking in writing music for prepared piano. His prepared piano works involved placing objects on or between the strings of the piano in order to alter the instrument's sound. Sonatas and Interludes, from , is his most famous example.
