Márta Kurtág once called this song cycle "chanson-like". And although Kurtág's music here is of course far from light music clichés, the refined simplicity, gentleness, and homely atmosphere of the series justifies this characterization and reveals the framework of Amy Károlyi's poetry in a congenial way.


Károlyi Amy: Slowly, o so slowly
Károlyi Amy: Balance
Károlyi Amy: Where does sound end...?
Károlyi Amy: With a lock on the door...
Károlyi Amy: Labyrinth
Károlyi Amy: What remained...
Kobayashi, Issa – Tandori Dezsö: Ars poetica
