Full score (6185) and parts (6185P) on sale.The final chord of a Schubert string quintet is the only recollection in this piece to the European musical culture. Sollima uses ancient Arabic scales and an unrelenting rhythm, which 'assumes a physical presence, the dramatic component of which translates into dance, into theatricality'.
