The one-movement fouth string quartet (1971) has a subtitle Quiet Songs (Hiljaisia lauluja). In contrast to the splintered plurality of the third quartet, the fourth is a homogenous minor-key landscape that never rises above mezzoforte. The subdued resignation, somehow recalling Shostakovich, is interrupted only by a few fleeting faster sections.
