The concert will be devoted to the work of Samuel Beckett, the author inspiring musicians in the 20th and 21st century. György Kurtág has been working on his opera for a few years (premiere scheduled for 2018). He has already used some texts of the Irish author several times. The ...pas à pas - nulle part… composition, yielding maximum expression from frugal gestures, is one of the most outstanding achievements of this Hungarian artist. Beckett is also important for Agata Zubel. She uses his lyrics in three compositions, including Not I – the song which has gained her international fame, and What Is the Word. Her Chapter 13, kept in a different mood and, so far, not performed in Poland, uses the text from the Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. There is a growing interest in the work of the French composer Christophe Bertrand. A transition between two, seemingly unconnected worlds: from Beckett's pessimism to the affirmation of the unhampered imagination in Saint-Exupéry's story, becomes possible in Bertrand's Madrigal, written to the texts of Italo Calvino and Roland Barthes.
