Kurtág - The Matchstick Man

Cyprus : Kurtág - The Matchstick Man

As part of the 8th International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival and the Cyprus premiere of György Kurtág’s masterpiece, Kafka Fragments, there will be a screening of The Matchstick Man – an atmospheric profile affording a perceptive and illuminating glimpse into Kurtág’s world.

A very private man who usually shies away from discussing himself and his work, Kurtág communicates his all-consuming passion for music and deep involvement in the world of sound to director Judit Kele. He is seen teaching and working with musicians – including his wife Marta, Adrienne Csengery or Claudio Abbado conducting the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Other contributors to the programme include the pianist Zoltan Kocsis, composers György Ligeti, Andras Szöllösy, Laszlo Vidovsky and Zoltan Jeney, as well as students of Kurtág.

Director: Judit Kele
Duration: 57'

The film will be followed the next day (12 October 2016, 20:30) with the Cyprus premiere of Kurtág’s masterpiece Kafka Fragments, performed by mezzo-soprano Loré Lixenberg and violinist Aisha Orazbayeva.
