Kurtág, György - Signs, Games and Messages - Widmer, Kurt (baritone)



Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
"Now in his late seventies, the Hungarian composer György Kurtág is one of the most interesting and esteemed composers alive... Six years since his much-admired Játékok, ECM releases three of Kurtág's most concentrated works, the title track a deft, often witty string piece deploying the individual and collective skills of the Orlando Trio in a series of striking homages to Kurtág's friends and contemporaries. They're joined by the baritone Kurt Widmer for "Hölderlin Gesänge" and a haunting song cycle to Beckett poems. Between them, the three works constitute 59 tracks, only one of them more than three minutes long - minimalism par excellence."
(The Observer)

The first new album by Kurtág in six years is a major event. Kurtág was always a master of the miniature - no tone or texture, no grain of sound is wasted - but now his work is more concentrated than ever. The work on "Signs, Games and Messages" represents a pinnacle of Kurtág's art of achieving the ultimate in expression by the most minimal of means. The album is comprised of settings of Hölderlin (and Paul Celan) in the "Hölderlin-Gesänge", sung by Kurt Widmer, and of Beckett (and Sébastien Chamfort) in " ... pas à pas - nulle part ...", sung by Widmer with string trio and percussion. The two song cycles are linked by the work-in-progress that gives the album its title: "Signs, Games and Messages" for strings. The three cycles recorded here - and to which the distinguished interpreters gave years of intense collaboration - comprise between them a total of 59 tracks, only one of which goes beyond three minutes in duration. More than any composer before him, Kurtág has mastered the art of the expressive musical aphorism - or, as he self-deprecatingly puts it, "making music out of almost nothing." But as England's The Guardian said, "A whole world of expression and suggestion can be packed into these exquisite, crystalline forms."
