The Young Wives' Song, written in 1925 by Attila Jozsef (1905-1937) is a poem I found accidentally in the summer of 2010. It struck me on reading it that it can have two different meanings: a positive and a tragic resonance. By employing different singing techniques, I compiled and set to music the lines of verse, so that sometimes one meaning, sometimes the other comes to the fore. I was just 20 when I wrote the piece, just as Attila Jozsef was when he wrote the poem.(Mate Balogh).

The full duration of the song is approximately 5 minutes. It was premiered by Boglárka Terray on 2 October 2010, in Budapest.
