Fascinating reading

“The book ‘Excerpts from Eternity’ by Barnabás Dukay and Márta Ábrahám is a fascinating reading from beginning to the end and it leads the reader toward the central order of unification.”
Dr. Salamon Kamp
president of Hungarian Bach Society

The text seems

“The text seems … like a lamplight suddenly falling onto a cathedral built from notes it leads us towards an understanding of its substance. On the enclosed CD Márta Ábrahám’s mature, deeply thought-out playing reveals the order that lies within the Partita in D minor and its concluding Ciaccona – undisturbed by any momentary caprice, general flourishes or ingrained habit.”
Fülöp Ránki

Exciting analysis in their book

Zoltán Péter

Excerpts from Eternity

“Excerpts from Eternity is an enormously detailed analytical study which I found fascinating to read. Since the book is so detailed it takes a long time to get through it all. However, I think that musicians who have the patience and the proper background will benefit greatly.”
Christoph Wolff
Harvard University Department of Music , Adams University Professor, Emeritus

A „multidimensional” way

“The recording of Márta Ábrahám’s performance of the Partita provides a great resource for reading the notes of the music in a „multidimensional” way.”
Katalin Fittler
