This about 7 minutes durable double bass quartet is the only work of the Frankfurt composer which devotes itself to the solo double bass. Composed in 1983, it became performed for the first time in 1984 by students of the college for music in Frankfurt a. M. (Germany). Sure it is one of the most difficult pieces of the double bass literature generally. It demands of all 4 musicians the biggest virtuosity. The music itself sticks to a freely treated tonality. The composer even in addition: " „ Of course I try to compose an autonomously music, however, I write the word with small letters". (In: Kurt Hessenberg - contributions to life and work) Who dares?
