Notes & Reviews:

Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag's singular masterpiece, Kafka Fragments, is presented here on CD and on DVD. The DVD includes a live concert performance of the piece, filmed in Yerevan, Armenia, as well as a filmed "masterclass" held in Budapest, Hungary, with Kurtag coaching the two performers. The CD contains a complete studio recording of Kafka Fragments, made in the USA. Consisting of 40 short 'songs,' the texts are drawn from Franz Kafka's letters, diary entries, and notebooks. Kafka Fragments is one of Kurtag's most autobiographical works, the score peppered with personal references and messages to well-known musicians and other acquaintances.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall, Music Department, Uni (08/23/2004-08/25/2004).
