In High School we discussed the sonata form in Music History, and I was eager to see what one would look like if made by Michael Drewes. That’s how this String Quartet came into being. It was performed on August 27th, 1964, as "Sonata in G-Major" (Allegro-Adagio-Allegro Finale; the other movements are later additions) with the orchestra of the German School in Mexico City, with Josefina Alvarez Ierena conducting. In those times we could of course not imagine in our wildest dreams that one day "Sibelius" or similar software would exist. A photocopy of the original handwritten score is kept in the Jewish National and University Library in Jerusalem under Record or System Number 001332963, DC Classification 785.74 Chamber music - Scores and parts: Arrangements, Excerpts - Quartets.

This string quartet was performed in the Jewish Museum of Florida in Miami Beach in a classical music concert by Florida Jewish composer Dr. Michael Drewes in honor of Florida Jewish History Month on Tuesday, 24 January 2006 by members of the New World Symphony of Miami, namely, as shown in the picture included:

1st Violin: Truong Nguyen 2nd Violin: Ann Okagaito Viola: Erik Rynearson Violoncello: Milena Mateeva

Listen to the MP3 file of the first movement from the recording of this concert. I have now corrected some errors of this score. The MP3 files of the other movements can be found in their respective scores.
