My first and - up to now - my only string quartet.

From 16 to 24 years I lived in the small town of Oberasbach, immediately next to Nuremberg and Furth. Her a new series of concerts was launched - the Oberasbacher Kulturtage.
This event was announced by the local press as "Oberasbach should not remain a sleeping town any more" ( because the men of the newspaper seemed to think that Oberasbach was only suitable for sleeping in. Why they chose Oberasbach remained the secret of the editorial staff. Probably they live there themselves.

Although I don't agree with this opinion the article gave me the idea to imitate the sound of a watch-clock at the beginning of my string quartet.
Thus the lead wasn't good for nothing.
