The form of „Aria“ for string quartet (2008) resembles roaming through a labyrinth constructed from a short melody which is being continuously defragmented changing the order of its phrases thus complicating more and more the possibility of reaching the exit until a sort of a solution is found while returning back to the starting point.

The piece was commissioned by the Thomas Mann festival in Nida (LT) and written for Kaunas string quartet.
