    Two of my very favorite Bartok works (Violin Sonatas 1 & 2).

    György KURTÁG: Moments musicaux (2005)
    :: Arditti Quartet [2008 Strasbourg Festival Musica, live]

    Kurtág lifted these six movements from earlier works (mostly from the ongoing series of Játékok keyboard pieces) and re-arranged them for string quartet for use as compulsory test pieces in a string quartet competition. They were so popular with players and audiences alike that Kurtág shrewdly and hastily made a suite of them, dubbing it Moments musicaux for publication. Judging from the results of a Google search, the work has been adopted by a good many ensembles and is being programmed very frequently. Indeed, Moments musicaux threatens to become the nonagenarian’s “breakthrough” work, one that might appeal to listeners who find his other works to be too distilled and elusive—Kurtág for the fetid masses. The pieces are colorful and accessible by Kurtág standards, and they’re also quite varied and contrasted (yet complementary). The fifth movement, “… rappel des oiseaux …,” is a glimmering, shimmering study on harmonics that has a small life of its own, as I’ve seen it programmed apart from the suite.

    A stellar live Arditti Quartet account of Moments musicaux from the 2008 Strasbourg Festival Musica was recorded and made available as a free download at the Radio France Web site (or maybe it was at the Festival Musica Web site?) shortly after the Festival. The recording has long since disappeared from those sites but has been preserved for posterity at the StateWork blog site, linked to below.

    Brahms was the man! Piano Trios, Piano Quartets, String Quintets and Sextets, Clarinet Sonatas, Trio and Quintet.
