Boris Yoffe’s string quartets are precise, austere rituals in sound. Each of these brief pieces utilizes a tiny vocabulary of musical “words” – specific pitches, brief motives, textural gestures – whose continually changing interactions create a magical web of relationships, some delicately concealed. Yoffe’s pieces are not, however, abstract, formalistic exercises. They aim to bring back the act of making music – even producing a single sound – to its original ritualistic context; they aim to present sound, an the act of it’s creation, as magic.
The slow tempi and the minimal vocabulary, which depict every sound as a vital creature, and in particular Yoffe’s avoidace of empty virtuosi, enable him – and would enable those listeners who would care to be initiated – to reenter, through the megic of sound, a rare spiritual realm.
