"They share the single-minded succinctness of the poet and musician, the knowledge of how to experience and convey the thrilling silence and a cry that penetrates right to the marrow, as well as a confrontation with death, an ever-recurring experience," the great musicologist János Kárpáti, who recently passed away, wrote in connection with Pilinszky and Kurtág. This evening will see a performance by Natasa Stork and Sándor Zsótér of the words of the Hungarian poet János Pilinszky, including works from the composer György Kurtág that are tied to Pilinszky, as well as Kurtág's arrangements of the works of Bach, which have a fundamental significance for both Hungarian artists.
In the course of the evening, Natasa Stork and Zsótér Sándor will perform the poem cycle Végkifejlet by János Pilinszky, as well as extracts from the Szálkák cycle.
The programme for the evening was compiled by Péter Kárpáti and Gergely Fazekas.
