Brahms, the master of grand constructions, in counterpoint to Hungarian composer Kurtág, the master of simplicity. Brahms’ sonatas give prominence to the song of the cello. Whereas in Kurtág's musical language, the instruments seem to be conversing in sign language, creating tiny islands of sound of unprecedented expressiveness. In the Hungarian hands of Miklós Perényi and Dénes Várjon - a former student of Kurtág – these jewels truly glitter.
