QUARTETTO DELL'ARTE is a five movement polytonal string quartet with an existential secret program. In addition, it uses direct transcriptions of melodies from the following recordings:

Movement One: Musique et Musiciens du Monde - Biélorussie (UNESCO); Kazakh Music Today (Topic Records Inc.)
Movement Three: Belgique  Ballades, etc. (OCORA-Radio France);Lituanie - Le pays des chansons (OCORA-Radio France)

The second movement is a pointillistic retrograde double fugue using melodies by Verdi and Puccini, and the fourth movement juxtaposes melodies of Machaut and Stephen Foster.
