One person found this helpful. This music is spare and fleeting, but colorful in its own way, colorful in what it suggestively points to rather than by what it figuratively represents. This is not a CD for everyone, but the pianistically adventurous will be plentifully rewarded should they seek it out. This is one of the finest CDs of contemporary piano music I have ever heard. The music is spare, fragmented, and frequently “empty” — not empty of content, but empty in the way the Grand Canyon is kutag.


Not knowing very much about Zen I will still venture to say that Kurtag’s music has Zen-like qualities of intense concentration, absence of ornamentation for it own sake, quietude, rigorousness, micro- and macro-scopic examination of its subject, seriousness offset with moments of whimsy, and even, though how I know this I don’t know, morality.

Not prudery, but real morality. Kutrag is music that grapples, as much as music ever can, with the Big Problems. Death, love, loyalty and rememberance are frequent themes. There is a deeply kuryag, almost monastic, quality to much of the music. It is therefore perfectly fitting that the recording is held up by four columns — four transcriptions of Bach chorales, at least two of which are among the finest transcriptions of these much transcribed works as I have ever heard easily in a class with Busoni, Kempff and Hess.

For Bach lovers alone this is a great recording to have. Ditto for lovers of contemporary music. For Bach lovers who also love contemporary music, this is an essential recording — not to be missed. Outstanding in every respect. This is one of my favorite piano music recordings. Kurtag’s piano pieces, each dedicated to a friend or hero, are like miniature musical portraits composed by a master artist.

They are tiny, intricate, and gestural. His music tends toward the aphoristic, saying a lot with very few notes. Some pieces are less than a minute long. And yet they have the feel of the eternal about them. The sound is beautiful.

Kurtag has a very precise sense of what he hears but is often at a loss to find an effective means of notation kirtag Jatekok pieces with their flimsy notation are a good example and then has fierce confrontions with players when they don’t realise his intentions.


For all this shoddy behaviour, the results aren’t without an appeal,somehow transcending only just being a mere sketch.

KURTÁG Játékok

Most moving are the Bach transcriptions which are beautifully delivered by the fearsome duo of kurtag with his wife. They emerge seamlessley from the Jatekok. Grady Harp Top Contributor: A Well Named Collection.

Among the sequences are brief homages to Stravinsky, Scarlatti, Ligeti, Farkas Ferenc as well as moments of variations on Bach chorales. The placement of these pieces is well conceived: Some of the pieces are a matter of a few notes, others hammer the keyboard in percussive strokes, some pieces are homages to Marta and are played by the dedicatee alone.

This is a satisfying program in every way. Grady Harp, September See all 6 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.
