Caroline Melzer (sopraan) & Nurit Stark (viool): ‘Roundhouse Reverb’


With his song cycle Kafka-Fragmente, György Kurtág wrote one of the most exciting masterpieces of the twentieth century. Separate pieces of text, often only one sentence, from the letters and diaries of Franz Kafka form the starting point.

In forty songs, Kurtág takes you through the labyrinth of Kafka's thoughts and emotions.

Melzer's colorful soprano voice whispers like satin or sticks out like a knife where Kurtág's rapidly changing score demands it. Nurit Starks violin is more than a support, it follows the voice as a mysterious shadow or disturbs with brutal lashing.
