Grammy Award-winning American soprano Susan Narucki, one of today’s most committed advocates of the music of our time, has a deep and lasting working relationship with Hungarian composer György Kurtág which dates back to 1986. Susan’s luminous tone and distinctive artistry and Kurtág’s idiosyncratic fusion of poetry and music come together in this quintessential recorded collection of some of the composer’s most iconoclastic vocal works. In Susan’s words, “I have spent much of my life immersed in this repertoire, and it has become essential to the way I understand music; it is the heart of my practice as a musician.” Equally appreciative, Kurtág acknowledges Susan, “who sang so warmly, purely, so ‘integer’ these songs – with thanks and love.”

critical acclaim for Susan Narucki
“fearless and expressive” – Gramophone
Soprano Susan Narucki Enchants In An Evening Of Kurtág’s Miniatures: “With their gripping and enchanting performance, they made a case for Scenes from a Novel as a late 20th-century miniaturist masterpiece, proof that good things — no, great things — can come in small packages.” – San Diego Union Tribune
