Hameenniemi's quartet (1989) is in four independent movements. Although harmonic and melodic elements bind the movements together, each one is infused with its own internal energy, and the composer has interposed slow contrasting material into the faster and livelier parts. The multiple layers of psychological meaning in this work make it a demanding and worthwhile challenge.
