I Allegro molto espressivo
Rekašius's Music for Strings is based on his Fifth String Quartet – the first and last movements are almost identical. The first movement mocks Classical performing practices, while the second presents a clash of hypertrophic emotionality and temperament. The finale is a pseudo-bombastic virtuoso piece.
