Christian Ofenbauer's composition "Zerstörung des Zimmers/der Zeit" (Destruction of the Room/of Time) was created in 1999 as a sound installation for the Schauspielhaus Graz (6 scores: string quartet, zither, contra guitar, 2 violins, piano and amplifier system). The string quartet and especially the piano part have found their way into the concert hall. Taking up essential elements of his own compositions and placing them in a new context is one of the peculiarities of the Austrian composer. This is how the concert version for string quartet and piano was finally created in 2000, in which the original idea of the sound installation was taken up in a completely new way: the string quartet and piano form two temporal levels, metrically independent of each other, but together they are set to a duration of exactly 48 minutes .

Both versions of composition "Zerstörung des Zimmers/der Zeit", the piano quintet and the piano version from the installation, now appear in direct juxtaposition on this double CD, recorded ingeniously by Quatuor Diotima and Johannes Marian.
