Spiegel String Quartet
In 1970, the American composer George Crumb was inspired by the Vietnam war to write his Black Angels string quartet. The work quotes important aspects of all things temptation: from the fall of Adam and the Danse Macabre, all the way to Tartini’s Devil’s Trill. The Spiegel String Quartet will also perform Gyula Bánkövi’s The Gate of Hell in a Belgian creation!
