Composed in 1959, the wind quintet represents the second phase in the process started in Kurtág's compositional activity by the String Quartet. A lengthy stay in Paris (studies with Milhaud and Marianne Stein), acquaintance with 20th century music other than Bartók's induced Kurtág to radically reevaluate his oeuvre. The new artistic orientation that resulted from that reevaluation demanded and made possible the development of a more precise, unequivocal compositional technique. The Wind Quintet is written for the traditional instruments of the genre, but the material given the instruments to play involves new means of expression and places the performers before very hightechnical demands. The Wind Quintet is in eight brief movements. It is not a series of bagatelles, however, but an uninterrupted arch. The microforms are highly articulated in themselves, the motifs, often consisting their gestural power, their emotional content. Every little detail is only understood in their place in the entire large form and is at the same time of decisive importance for the form. World premiere: Budapest 1963, Budapest Wind Quintet. Duration: 7'

Das Bläserquintett entstand für die traditionellen Instrumente der Gattung, der musikalische Stoff wird aber durch neue Ausdrucksmittel verkörpert und verlangt von den Musikern ein sehr hohes technisches Niveau. Das Quintett besteht aus acht kurzen Sätzen. Es ist keine Serie kürzerer Stücke, sondern bildet einen einzigen durchgehender Bogen. Die Mikroformen sind in sich auf einem hohen Grad artikuliert, die Motive bestehen im Wesentlichen aus der Kraft der Gestenund dem emotionalen Inhalt. Jeder kleiner Abschnitt hat nur in der großen Form, an seiner Stelle einen Sinn, gleichzeitig bekommen die Teile eine bestimmende, formenbildende Bedeutung. Erstaufführung: 1963,Budapest, Budapester Bläserquintett.
