Happy Birthday György Kurtág

Reading time: 1 min. György Kurtág

Last December Kurtág received Royal Philharmonic Society Gold Medal at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. 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.”

Happy Birthday György Kurtág!
