The title of Thomas Larcher’s third string quartet, Madhares, refers to the name of a deserted place on the island of Crete which inspired him to compose this work. Larcher developed the piece from repetitions of sounds generated by plucking the strings with a coin. The C major in the second movement Honey from Anopolis evokes the picture of an idealistic time long gone. The idyll is broken by rapid rhythmic movements marked ‘sleepless’.
