‘After an eight-year-old British schoolgirl had obviously been constantly bullied by other pupils, she hanged herself with a skipping rope.’ This laconic and at the same time shocking news item inspired Helmut Oehring to write his second string quartet which, both in the title and in the distressing style of the 7 short movements (called ‘chambers’), preserves impressively the memory of this pupil. Premiered in 2003 at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the work is now available as a newly set performance score revised by the composer.
