Gyorgy Kurtag

  • On WCRB In Concert, pipa player Wu Man offers traditional and contemporary pieces performed on the storied Chinese instrument, and the Parker Quartet plays chamber works through the centuries by Bach, Webern, Kurtag, and Janáček's "Intimate Letters" String Quartet, all performed at GBH's Fraser Performance Studio.
  • On The Bach Hour, the Hilliard Ensemble and soloist Christoph Poppen bring the composer's Violin Partita No. 2 together with his settings of Lutheran chorales to render a sonic picture of anguish, grief, and transcendence.
