'We have been working on it for eight years and perhaps we will never finish. The aim is, after all, to continue the dialogue between us.' So wrote György Kurtág, Jr. on his and his father's joint composition Zwiegespräch in 2007. This piece, originally composed for string quartet and synthesizer, represents an extraordinary cooperation: a dialogue between two different artists, two generations and also between the sounds of tradition and new technologies. The Swiss conductor Olivier Cuendet created an orchestral version with four movements. This version, comprised of Tears, Love Song, Müezzin and Solace, was premiered by the MÁV Symphony Orchestra and György Kurtág, Jr. conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy on May 16 in Budapest. The version in nine movements was completed in 2014.
