György Kurtág Jr. studied music in Hungary, before joining the team of the Centre Européen de Recherche Musicale in Metz in 1980. He went on to collaborate with Maurizio Kagel, Péter Eötvös and Sylvano Bussotti, as well as participating in the American tour of Pierre Boulez’s Repons while working on music theory and theories of musical movement, as well as innovation in instrument design. With Daniel Kientzy (saxophone) and Frank Royan Le Mee (vocalist) he founded the ensemble Comité des Fêtes. With György Kurtág Sr. he composed the standout Zwiegespräch for “electronic hybrid” string quartet and synthesizer, as well as film scores and a score of diverse pieces while also researching composition. A regular participant at major international festivals, he also remains in the vanguard of innovative musicological research.
