Asko | Schoenberg Ensemble, Netherlands Radio Choir
Natalia Zagorinskaya (soprano)
Gerrie de Vries (mezzo-soprano)
Yves Saelens (tenor)
Harry van der Kamp (bass)
Jean-Guihen Queyras (violoncello)
Elliott Simpson (guitar)
Tamara Stefanovich (piano)
Csaba Király (piano, spoken word)
Reinbert de Leeuw (conductor)

De Leeuw consulted extensively with György and Márta Kurtág before and after each session: "There were moments when I was overwhelmed at first hearing", says the famously-demanding Kurtág, "and we could embrace the result immediately. But sometimes we were critical. The fact that Reinbert always listened to our remarks and re-recorded fragments or even whole pieces makes this publication authentic."

Works heard here are presented in chronological order of composition, beginning with the Four Capriccios (1959-1970, rev. 1993) and continuing with Four Songs to Poems by János Pilinszky (1975), Grabstein für Stephan (1978-79, rev. 1989), Messages of the late Miss R. Troussova (1976-80), …quasi una fantasia… (1987-88), Op. 27 No. 2 Double Concerto (1989-90), Samuel Beckett: What is the Word (1991), Songs of Despair and Sorrow (1980-1994), Songs to Poems by Anna Akhmatova (1997-2008), Colinda-Balada (2010), and Brefs Messages (2011).

The extensive CD booklet includes all song texts with translations, an interview with Reinbert de Leeuw, liner notes by Wolfgang Sandner and Paul Griffiths, and a statement by György Kurtág.
