Personalities | György Kurtág | Contemporary | Classical
(Jörd’-ji Koor-tag) b. 1926
Kurtág’s music is unusual for the depth and intensity with which it addresses human concerns. He has never been interested in forging new musical paths and often revisits familiar territory. The one abiding concern of his work is to strip away everything that is inessential structurally or emotionally (Messages of the Late R.V. Troussova, 1976–80). Kurtág’s concern with the tiniest of links has inevitably imposed brevity on his works, but he experienced a flowering in the late 1980s with the expressive directness of pieces such as Grabstein für Stephan (‘Stephen’s Gravestone’, 1989).
