by Ulrich Schultheiss
ping pong, a quartet composed in a minimalist in style with colourings of jazz, was composed for two bass recorders in F, bass recorder in C and contrabass recorder in F. The composer incorporates lyrical phrases, rhythmical networks, and groovy passages, and creates an image of a table tennis game with both synchronised players and players with their own special moves.
This sophisticated ensemble composition was written for the „Quartet New Generation“ (QNG).
There also exists a shorter version of ping pong (2008/2013), which was written in cooperation with the ensemble Flautando Köln.
