Audio Excerpt

4 Capriccios, op. 9

Work Introduction

Composed in 1970, 4 Capriccios is a setting of poems by István Bálint. The first one bears the title Paris I – Musée de Cluny: La Dame à la Licorne. It is of course a reference to the Renaissance gobelin in the Cluny Museum showing Queen Mary of England with the mythological unicorn. The gobelin only serves as a point of departure for a chain of free associations unrelated by any logic but linked with hidden ties inherent in the succession of words. The second capriccio is entitled Paris II – Tour Saint Jacques. The structure of the poem is similar to that of the previous one and its inspiration also comes from a visual experience in Paris. The third movement Language Lesson and the fourth one Ars poetica start out from well-known notions but arrive at ideas in blaring contrast with the accepted meaning of those notions.
