Marta Kurtág, Gyorgy Kurtág (piano)

Subtitled ‘Játékok - Games and Transcriptions for piano solo and four hands’, this is a film, directed by Isabelle Soulard, of a concert given in September 2012 at Paris’s Cité de la Musique by the composer György Kurtág and his wife.

The duo performances of Márta and György Kurtág have long been distinguished by flinty new music precision, matched by a quick-witted playfulness and underpinned by a quality of affection. “What playing!” raved the New Yorker’s Alex Ross of a ‘Játékok’ concert. “Notes were placed with surgical care; inner voices gleamed in crystalline patterns; elusive emotional states were painted with quick, light strokes.” From its origins in the early 1970s as a good-humoured unsystematic approach to teaching contemporary keyboard techniques to young players (early pieces in the series included use of clusters, glissandi, harmonics, playing with palms and forearms - a wide range of gestures), ‘Játékok’ (Games) has developed into a compendium of epigrammatic homages, jewelled miniatures dedicated to composers from Scarlatti to Stravinsky and Christian Wolff, and tributes to colleagues and influences. In this special case the whole programme - 40 pieces plus three encores - is dedicated to the memory of the Kurtágs’ good friend, musicologist Haydée Charbagi (1979-2008). Interspersed amongst György Kurtág’s pieces are his much-admired Bach transcriptions - ‘Játékok’ is a work that has gained strength through contrasting and cross-referencing with other music. The whole programme closes with a radiant version of Bach’s ‘Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit’.

Among ECM’s many widely-praised recordings of Kurtág’s music is a 1997 CD of ‘Játékok’ (4535112), likewise performed by the composer and his wife. “A very special experience - as memorable and as profound as any to be had from new music today,” said Gramophone.

Bruckner: The Mature Symphonies (Symphony No. 9)

Bruckner: The Mature Symphonies (Symphony No. 9)


Bruckner:

Symphony No. 9 in D Minor


“This music is more serious and more significant than one had thought”, the Berliner Zeitung summarized in its review of Daniel Barenboim’s celebrated Bruckner cycle with the Staatskapelle Berlin. Bruckner’s unfinished Symphony No. 9 brought to an end, in a poignant manner, the work of one of the greatest symphonic composers of the Classic‐Romantic era. Once more the essential elements of Bruckner’s symphonic style are present; the technical standard, the intensity of sound, and the enormous richness of expression are in this singular work brought to an unsurpassed niveau.

Verdi: Rigoletto

Verdi: Rigoletto

A stage performance of the Opernhaus Zürich, June 2014


Saimir Pirgu (Il Duca di Mantova), George Petean (Rigoletto), Aleksandra Kurzak (Gilda), Andrea Mastroni (Sparafucile), Judith Schmid (Maddalena) & Julia Riley (Giovanna)

Philharmonia Zürich & Chor der Oper Zürich, Fabio Luisi (conductor) & Tatjana Gürbaca (stage director)

Set and Lighting Designer: Klaus Grünberg

Costume Designer: Silke Willrett

Grand festivities are held at the court of the Duke of Mantua. But the community which enjoys itself no longer knows values and amuses itself out of deadly boredom. The most cynical of all is court jester Rigoletto. He only wants to protect his daughter Gilda against the depraved world. He prohibits her everything – the young woman, however, goes her own way. On the first DVD of the new label Philharmonia Records we present Giuseppe Verdi’s popular opera «Rigoletto» live from the Opernhaus Zürich. Therewith, Director Tatjana Gürbaca – chosen as the Director of the Year 2013 by the «Opernwelt» – succeeded in producing a scenically reduced as well as expressively poetic production, acclaimed by press and public alike. Fabio Luisi, general music director of the Opernhaus Zürich and one of the leading interpreters of Italy’s opera repertory, stands at the desk of the Philharmonia Zürich.

Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D759 'Unfinished' - Allegro moderato


It was a deeply affecting and appropriate farewell. The spirit of Claudio Abbado, the great conductor and founder of orchestras who died in January 2014, was present in music, words, and silence. Thousands upon thousands came to the Basilica di Santo Stefano in Bologna and the Piazza della Scala in Milan to pay their last respects. In Lucerne, the members of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA paid tribute to this extraordinary man and friend with a deeply moving concert – “The emotional intensity was unbelievable; this could only be achieved by true musicians, by those capable of love.” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) Friends and associates look back fondly on Claudio Abbado and speak of how they experienced these moments of grief and farewell.

Steen-Andersen:

Black Box Music

Run Time Error #1+2


Oslo Sinfonietta, Hakon Stene

The Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen’s audio-visual work Black Box Music is a surprising, energetic, noisy and yet profoundly entertaining deconstruction of traditional musical drama. The starting point is the classical setting of a conductor in front of an orchestra – but quickly the scenery explodes in musical and choreographic energy ad absurdum, bending the conductor’s role through puppet theatre, hand choreography and eventually a musical performance involving tuning forks, finger snaps, rubber bands and the construction of a musical machine within the black box.

The DVD also includes Steen-Andersen’s signature work Run Time Error, filmed at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, as well as a short documentary, and thus offers a fascinating meeting with one of Nordic Music’s most visionary voices today.

Since its conception in 2012, Black Box Music has been performed 15 times in 9 different countries. The work was nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2014.

Phill Niblock: Brazil 84

Phill Niblock: Brazil 84

16mm film with music soundtrack by Phill Niblock

Three Orchids

Trio Scordatura


Phill Niblock (b.1933) is an intermedia artist using music, film, photography, video and computers. He makes thick, loud drones of music, filled with microtones of instrumental timbres which generate many other tones in the performance space. Simultaneously, he presents films / videos which look at the movement of people working, or computer driven abstract images. 'Brazil 84' is from Niblock’s series “The Movement of People Working.” 16mm, unedited long shots, carefully framed to compress single movements, shot in rural and urban settings, capturing people in their working environments: men and women using their hands and body to an eternal working choreography that seems tuned to the microtonal universe of Niblock’s music.

All these images are timeless, they could have been shot today, in the ‘60s or even earlier in the century. All these images have a perfect timing, a perfect framing, captured not as a document but more as a choreographic gesture, as visual music. The images are raw, colours are saturated and the sound seems to happen in your head. Phill Niblock says: “In 1984, I returned to Brazil, deciding to travel the coast, closest to the ocean, from Salvador, Bahia, to as far north as I could get in the time I had. I was the sole film crew, carrying the camera bag and tripod, loading the film, reading the light... The film from that trip is the material on this DVD. And it was beautiful to see that country and those people.”

Originally silent, Niblock chose to add his music as the soundtrack, as he often does during screenings of his films. These works, specially compiled for this release, are presented in both stereo and surround mixes. For this DVD, a new transfer was made of the original 16mm film, which was then restored under Niblock’s supervision. The Digipak package contains a booklet of essays by Niblock, Bob Gilmore (music), Carlos Casas (film) and Johan Vandermaelen (the recordings).

From today on your name is Sara (Ab Heute heisst du Sara)

From today on your name is Sara (Ab Heute heisst du Sara)

By Volker Ludwig and Detlef Michel


Grips Theatre Berlin

Lyrics: Volker Ludwig

Music: Hansgeorg Koch

Based on the autobiography 'Ich trug den gelben Stern', published in English as 'Outcast: A Jewish Girl in Wartime Berlin' by Inge Deutschkron

1933. Inge is eleven years old, a bright Berlin kid, who refuses to understand why all of a sudden she is not allowed to play on the street. In the years after that for Inge, being a Jew means not only humiliation, attacks and restrictions, but also never going dancing or to the cinema. It means growing up without having been young. “Starting today your name is Sara,” a police officer tells 16-year-old Inge in 1938 and stamps a “J” on her ID card. “J” as in Jew. From that point on everything changed in the life of the self-confident, young Berliner. Constantly on the run from the Nazis, she and her mother wander through Berlin from one hiding place to the other….

The play, based on Inge Deutschkron’s book 'Ich trug den gelben Stern', tells a story in 33 scenes. Of the fear of the hunted. Of numerous individuals who helped Inge and her mother and who became, for Inge Deutschkron, the “quiet heroes.” And last but not least, of the fierce courage of a young girl who refused to give up. It has had 350 sold-out performances in the GRIPS Theater and is still part of its repertoire. In Berlin alone more than 120,000 theatergoers have seen the play since its premiere in 1989. In the meantime it has been staged by 42 theatres. Berlin’s GRIPS Theater, founded in 1969 under the influence of the student movement, is today the world’s most famous theatre for children and young people. As a comedic, musical “hang-in-there” Theater, it deals with the real problems of its audiences.

After many years working as a journalist in Tel Aviv, Inge Deutschkron lives once again in Berlin, significantly encouraged by her experiences with the play 'From today, your name is Sara'.
