Fascinating sounds!
At the core of the Extra Concert are György Kurtág's Microludes for String Quartet. Following Anton Webern, Kurtág wanted to achieve "such brevity that every moment is essential and important". Most of the expression and content should be formulated with the fewest notes".

The immensely dense twelve Microludes are not performed in one piece, however, but are repeatedly interrupted by other works of contemporary music: Imaginative works for solo winds, the minimalist sound piece Having never written a note for percussion by James Tenney, or chamber music by Anton Webern and Eliott Carter.
