Peteris Vasks agitates in his work against the situation in his country. “When I think about modern life, it is impossible to not realize that we are balancing on the edge of the end of time.” They are heavy themes that motivate Vasks’ music – in his string quartets, too. In his first three string quartets the transformation is clearly perceptible from the direct sources of his inspiration to an abstraction of his worry and suffering.       Challenge Classics on sale
