Abstract:This is a translation of Helmut Lachenmann's analysis of his second string quartet, Reigen seliger Geister. He describes the background of the piece, discusses some of the effects used in the score and shows how it connects to other works in his oeuvre. Although intentionally vague at times, it is nonetheless highly insightful. This article, written in 1994 - 1995, appears in German in MaeE.
