~ KURTAG / MELZER / STARK(Hybrid SACD)
György Kurtág (born 1926) composed his Kafka-Fragmente in the mid-1980s; it's forty settings of Franz Kafka text fragments remain one of his most often-performed works, commonly presented in staged versions. Many of the movements are extremely brief; in the present recording 11 of the movements are less than 0:30 long. This often highly virtuosic and demanding score is interpreted by soprano Caroline Meltzer and violinist Nurit Stark, artists with a strong commitment to contemporary music who've collaborated with composers such as Aribert Reimann, Sofia Gubaidulina and Viktor Suslin.
