Below is a commentary by the label.

"Morton FeldmanThis is his second string quartet, written in 1983 at the height of his career.
Before that, most of the works were long, about an hour and a half, but as Feldman had predicted, they did not disappear from concert and festival programs; It was hailed as a "progress."

Feldman's String Quartet (II) is composed of repeating patterns.This pattern usually surfaces at some point in the composition without preparation, is maintained for a period of time, and then is abruptly interrupted and may return later.

In this context,Feldman has always emphasized the interplay of repetition and variation in his music.For him, the two aspects of ``repetition'' and ``change'' (Stravinsky and Schoenberg) were the defining criteria of 2th century music.He even claims to have incorporated Schoenberg's concept of "variational development" into his own compositional technique.

Exceprt from liner notes by Sebastian Claren via God Records:

"When Morton Feldman wrote his second string quartet – or String Quartet (II),
as he titled it in the score – in 1983, he found himself at the height of his career:
prior to this, his long form compositions, of which the majority lasted around one and a half hours, had not isolated him or let him disappear from concert and festival programming, as he had expected, but were on the contrary denied as a major “ breakthrough” and a big “step forward”. 

Feldman's String Quartet (II) consists of repeated patterns, which usually surface at a certain point in the composition without preparation, are maintained over a given period, and then abruptly abort to possibly return later. 

In this context, Feldman has always emphasized the interplay of “reiteration” and “change” in his music - two aspects that in his mind had been decisive criteria of the music of the twentieth century as “repetition” and “variation” (Stravinsky and Schoenberg). He even claimed Schoenberg's concept of “developing variation” for his composition technique..."
