Notes

  • Program notes: 

    String Quartet No. 1 evolves around three stories inspired by Homer’s Odyssey.
    1. Helen’s Hallucinogens
    Menelaos’ wife Helen uses hallucinogens in the drinks served to Odysseus’ son Telemachos on his visit to the palace, to control the strong emotions created by the stories told about his father that had been missing for years after the war in Troy ended.
    2. Ino’s Veil
    Ino gave a special veil to Odysseus to protect him from drowning from the strong winds while struggling in the deep ocean.
    3. Argos
    Odysseus’ beloved dog Argos, recognizes his master on his return to Ithaca, even though he was dressed up as a beggar to hide among others and get inside the palace. Argos has a moment of joy and dies in peace straight after, while Odysseus painfully avoids to come closer to him to remain undercover.
