This dark and beautiful work by Hungarian master composer György Kurtàg is a setting of numerous short fragments of the writings of Franz Kafka. Intimately scored for soprano and violin, this work has been described as "theatre with just two people onstage" by New York director Peter Sellars, who staged the work at Carnegie Hall in 2005. Speaking of the work's power, Sellars said: "A tiny little thought opens out into immense vistas... open up the secret world where the audience members can bring in their own thoughts, dreams, wishes, and regrets. One of the incantatory powers that the song recital has is that it's once of the most public private acts."
