Kafka Fragments, by Gyorgy Kurtag

Did anyone go to listen and see Dawn Upshaw perform last January at Zankel Hall in New York? I understand this was directed by Peter Sellars, with Geoff Nuttall from the St. Lawrence String Quartet involved somehow. Playing the violin, perhaps? I read about it in the "Goings on About Town" in New Yorker, issue of January 10th.

I did find a review of that performance with a photograph or still of the theatre performance, on The Brooklyn Rail.

You can see soprano Dawn Upshaw's photo on this Carnegie Hall web site.

I wonder if anyone filmed or recorded this performance.
