Notes & Reviews:

This is the first complete recording of the 24 'signs, games and messages' by Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag. 'Signs, games and messages' is a collection of very personal miniatures, which Kutag began writing almost 50 years ago, and continues to add to through the present day. Many have been written, dedicated or inspired by a particular person; they pass, sometimes impertinent, sad, serene, cheerful, joyful, thoughtful or melancholic.

"a sometimes baffling succession of prickly pizzicato and cartoonish, sweeping glissandi, demented see-saw bowing and mouse-like scurryings. Many are musical aphorisms, prompts for reflection, and quite a few are evocations of friends and influential teachers, miniature memories like the lugubrious "Letter to Vera Ligeti" and "For Imre Földes at 60", which has the poise and immobility of a zen rock-garden." -The Independent*****
