Description

The son of one of today's greatest composers György Kurtág, also named György, creates his own electronic music - and his themes are incorporated into the synthesized arrangements of László Hortobágy.

György Kurtág Jr, son of the great Hungarian composer, has long been developing his own electronic music. In this unusual project, fellow composer László Hortobágyi integrates Kurtág themes into his own arrangements in a recording that celebrates a long friendship. "This is," say the group members, "a Hortobágyi album about Kurtág," as well as "an invitation to discover a new sphere of music". Drifting ambient washes of synthesized sound, near-subliminal bass, collages of subtle colours and sudden eruptions are but part of the story. An intriguing addition to ECM's growing catalogue of electronica for discerning listeners.

Personnel: György Kurtág Jr. (synthesizers), László Hortobágyi (synthesizers, computers), Miklós Lengyelfi (bass, effects)
