“Anything can be an inspiring experience if you are in the proper receptive state. As long as there is such an experience. The underground can make a strong impression, and even the really ugly outskirts of a city can be beautiful – if you are open.” (from Gyorgy Kurtag: Three Interviews and Ligeti Homages, Bálint András Varga)

Earlier that year, Tom Service wrote a guide to the music of Kurtág, which you can read on The Guardian. One of his readers described the composer (together with Pierre Boulez, who is one year his elder) as “the last surviving link[s] to the great composers born in the 1920s.”
