WEDS@7 Susan Narucki

event_title

A concert devoted to the vocal chamber music of the Hungarian master composer, György Kurtág, including Hét Dal (Seven songs for voice and cimbalom) S.K. Remembrance Noise (voice and violin), Erinnerung an einen Winterabend (voice, violin, cimbalom), Attila Jozsef Fragments (solo voice) and Scenes from a Novel (voice, violin, cimbalom and double bass. When asked about the impetus behind the program, Narucki said “György Kurtág’s music has been one of the touchstones of my life as a musician. I was introduced to the composer’s music at the beginning of my professional career, performing the West Coast premiere of Messages of the R.V. Troussova at the 1986 Ojai Festival. I stepped into a world of vivid, particular emotional and musical expression, which has fascinated me for over thirty years. Some of the pieces on the program have been an integral part of my life as a singer; they are works that I’ve presented many times and to which I return again and again. In the case of some others, I return and remember. The scores are full of messages - observations, ideas, questions - scraps of responses to the landscape of the imagination, where I have tried to find my bearings, again and again.”

The soprano is joined by guest artists Curtis Macomber (violin), Nicholas Tolle (cimbalom) and Kathryn Schulmeister (double bass).
