Soprano Tiffany DuMouchelle and violinist David McCarroll perform Gyorgy Kurtag's "Kafka Fragments," a dramatic musical masterpiece. The performance takes place on March 30th, 2011 at 8p.m. until 9:30p.m.
40 fragments, taken from Kafka's letters and diary entries, offer us insight into the secret world of one of the most influential German writers of the 20th century. Kurtag's settings of Kafka's writings urge both soprano and violin to explore the expressive possibilities of their instrument, creating an incredibly moving, provocative and engaging work.
