String Quartet No. 3 (Aspects of Peltoniemi Hintrik's Funeral March / Aspekteja Peltoniemen Hintrikin surumarssista) composed by Aulis Sallinen (1935-). For string quartet. Parts. Published by Fennica Gehrman (FG.55009-135-1).

ISBN 979-0-55009-135-1.

The third string quartet (1969) by Sallinen is the most frequently performed of Sallinen's quartets, and it is also known in a version for string orchestra. The subtitle refers to a Finnish fiddler tune, heard at the beginning of the quartet. In the course of the work, this tune is cast in a variety of settings through modern variation techniques giving the work the character of a modern chaconne. Sallinen spices it with his own wit (an aborted fugue and bastardised baroque cadences for example) as well as skilful handling of violinistic timbral gestures.
