Gyula Csapó: Handshake after Shot

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Eddins
Gyula Csap?'s name isn't widely known in the American new music scene, but the effusive accolades by John Cage, Gy?rgy Kurt?g, and Morton Feldman cited in the program booklet make it clear that it ought to be. Csap? was born in 1955 in Hungary, studied with Feldman, and has since taught at McGill, Princeton, and the University of Saskatchewan. The music on this CD shows a clear aesthetic connection to the three masters who admire his work so much, and it's possible to trace their varied influences in his music, which has an individuality that would keep it from being mistaken for the work of any of those composers. The pieces recorded here are notable for the spareness ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Eddins
Gyula Csapó's name isn't widely known in the American new music scene, but the effusive accolades by John Cage, György Kurtág, and Morton Feldman cited in the program booklet make it clear that it ought to be. Csapó was born in 1955 in Hungary, studied with Feldman, and has since taught at McGill, Princeton, and the University of Saskatchewan. The music on this CD shows a clear aesthetic connection to the three masters who admire his work so much, and it's possible to trace their varied influences in his music, which has an individuality that would keep it from being mistaken for the work of any of those composers. The pieces recorded here are notable for the spareness of their textures, their lack of linear development, and the ambiguity of the relationship of any given moment to piece as a whole. "Krapp's Last Tape -- after Samuel Beckett" replaces Beckett's actor with a violinist who records segments of his playing and performs a duet with the playback. The most striking piece on the CD is "Sutraecitations" for singer, tuned glasses, three clarinets, miscellaneous noise sources, and a piano used primarily as a resonator. The text, taken from Buddhist writings, uses sensually evocative language to describe the beauties of a land the Buddha once visited. The unpredictably varied repetitions of the text, overlapped or interrupted by interjections from the instrumental ensemble, does indeed achieve the radiant equilibrium "between the spiritual-meditative and sensory spheres" that the composer was aiming for. The self-effacing performances allow the serenity of "Sutraecitations" and the nihilistic grittiness of "Krapp's Last Tape" to speak for themselves. For fans of the modernist aesthetic of the mid- to late-twentieth century, Csapó is a composer to watch out for.
