Overview

Christmas – Peace on Earth’ is the leading motive of the String Quartet, a tenet of faith as well as an expression of hope.

In the first part of the work Vasks uses themes from a well-known Christmas carol, while the second part is strongly influenced by Latvian folksongs and dances. The third section, with a chromaticiscm strongly reminiscent of Shostakovitch, investigates and questions the feasibility of any peace in our society. The final, calm and slightly melancholy section symbolizes ‘Peace on Earth’ by means of sonorous sustained choirs.
