Subtitled Játékok – Games and Transcriptions for piano solo and four hands, this is a film, directed by Isabelle Soulard, of a Kurtág concert at Paris’s Cité de la Musique. The duo performances of Márta and György Kurtág are distinguished by tough new music precision, underpinned by a quality of affection (“What playing!” raved the New Yorker of a Játékok concert. “Notes were placed with surgical care; inner voices gleamed in crystalline patterns; elusive emotional states were painted with quick, light strokes.”) Játékok has become a compendium of tiny homages, jewelled miniatures dedicated to composers from Scarlatti to Stravinsky and tributes to colleagues and influences. In this special case the whole programme is dedicated to the memory of the Kurtágs’ good friend, musicologist Haydée Charbagi (1979-2008). Interspersed amongst the Játékok pieces are György Kurtág’s Bach transcriptions. The whole programme closes with a beautiful version of Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit.

Untertitelt Játékok – Games and Transcriptions for piano solo and four hands, zeigt diese DVD/Blu-ray disc einen Film, den die Regisseurin Isabelle Soulard von einem Kurtág-Konzert in der Cité de la Musique in Paris drehte. Die Duo-Auftritte von Márta und György Kurtág zeichnen sich durch straffe Neue-Musik-Präzision aus, die durch aufmerksame Zuwendung grundiert wird („Was für ein Spiel!“ jubelte der ‚New Yorker‘ über ein Játékok-Konzert. „Die Töne wurden mit chirurgischer Sorgfalt gesetzt, innere Stimmen funkelten in kristallinen Mustern, schwer fassbare Seelenzustände wurden mit schnellen, leichten Strichen skizziert“). Játékok ist ein Kompendium kleiner Hommagen, brilliant schillernder Miniaturen, gewidmet Komponisten von Scarlatti bis Stravinsky, und Tribute an Kollegen und Einflüsse geworden. In diesem besonderen Fall ist das gesamte Programm der Erinnerung an einen guten Freund der Kurtágs, der Musikwissenschaftlerin Haydée Charbagi (1979-2008) gewidmet. Zwischen die Játékok-Stücke sind György Kurtágs Bach-Transkriptionen eingestreut. Das Programm endet mit einer herrlichen Fassung von Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit.
