Founded on the principles of the rich concept of Chaos in the arts, science, and philosophy, the Chaos String Quartet takes risks and welcomes the unpredictable in its performance of the classical quartet repertoire.
In its second Friday Lunchtime Concert, the Quartet presents its ‘Ordered Chaos’ programme – a varied and inventive exploration of chaos as the "archetype of everything creative", bringing together music from five centuries and several countries.
The Quartet writes:
“In Greek mythology, Khaos is rather a primeval, unstructured potential from which anything can arise. Music is a form of creation in which sounds and tones are arranged in a certain structure to create a harmonious composition. Without khaos, the chaotic state from which everything arises, there would be no way to shape and transform these sounds and tones into a musical creation. To follow a very own and fundamentally sincere path, a path that wants to overcome supposed boundaries - that is the motto of the Chaos String Quartet. The four quartet members see chaos as the "archetype of everything creative", whereby art, science and philosophy can be combined into a total work of art, and they share the desire to be present as a risk-taking, multinational voice on the chamber music stages of the world.”
