Kurtág and Vidovszky in Pannonhalma
It is a pleasing event that the traditional art festival of the Benedictine Archabbey of Pannonhalma, Arcus Temporum, can be held again on August 21-23. In addition to classical works, the program includes György Kurtág’s cycle for soprano and violin, Kafka Fragments, performed by Anu Komsi and András Keller. This work could be heard shortly before the forced break of concert life, in February this year, also with the participation of these excellent performers, in Budapest.
In Pannonhalma, the audience can also get acquainted with László Vidovszky's work Promenade, the score of which has recently been published by UMP Editio Musica Budapest. The composition, written in 2015, which continues Vidovszky's series of works for chamber ensemble, features two solo violins in an ensemble of 15 musicians. It depicts six musical images in six movements, as the stops of a walk that brings unexpected encounters, and will be performed by members of Concerto Budapest under the direction of András Keller.
