György Kurtág Kafka Fragments

ZOOM LINK: Click here to request the link and passcode

Meine Gefängniszelle – meine Festung (My prison cell—my fortress) was György Kurtág’s alternative title for his Kafka Fragments, and is considered by the composer to be Kafka's diary entry that lies at its core. Kafka’s beautiful turning, from isolation to solitude, was the genesis of all we did this summer at Yellow Barn.

This week we revisit last summer's performance of Kafka Fragments with musicians, audience members, and Stanley Corngold, Professor Emeritus of German and Comparative Literature at Princeton, and a prolific translator and writer on the work of Franz Kafka.


Guests to include musicians from the August 7th concert:

Tony Arnold, soprano
Elaine Daiber, soprano
Lucy Fitz Gibbon, soprano
Alice Ivy-Pemberton, violin
Stanley Corngold, Kafka scholar
Moderated by Artistic Director Seth Knopp

The Yellow Barn Resiliency Fund for Music and Musicians

To continue responding to present day realities, we need everyone with us. Today we are creating the Yellow Barn Resiliency Fund for Music and Musicians. $25,000 in matching funds are already on the table, and gifts between $250 and $500 will be matched dollar for dollar by those who have already come forward.

It is essential that we meet this challenge. We have so much more work to do. Music is essential, musicians are indispensable, and Yellow Barn has never been more necessary.
