After many years of performing and completing a CD recording of Alexander Mosolov’s first string quartet, the Utrecht String Quartet decided to venture into another dimension with the piece. Mosolov’s quartet was written in 1926 and this was a very exciting time in the history of Russian film, so they searched for Russian silent movies from the same time looking for excerpts and images  to underline their interpretation and deepen and enhance the powerful music of Mosolov.

The resulting film is a compilation of excerpts taken from three different movies. Images depicting the typical idealistic peasant lifestyle, the development of industrialization – mining, trams, telephone exchanges, and crowded city streets all combine to give a wonderful visual experience of Russian life of this time.

Normally music is composed for film however the string quartet turned the tables and did it the other way around resulting in a very exciting acoustic-visual experience.

Daniel Brueggen (film maker), about the project:  “The members of the quartet put their ideas about the selection of film excerpts and the music onto paper, it was up to me to make a unity of it all. I had to choose when an image /subject would finish and then flow logically to the next. In the final version there is no real story line as such, but visual moods that colour the listeners experience. Normally the eye dominates the ear  – what you see you think you hear. It is peculiar how the ear works when the eye is following an image at the same time.
