:Library to host free concert: The public library will present a free concert of “Kafka Fragments” by Gyorgy Kurtag Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Johnson Auditorium, 99 Main St. Performers are soprano Aliana de la Guardia and violinist Gabriela Diaz. A brief discussion about this work by composer and scholar Christian Gentry precedes the concert and a reception will follow. Reservations can be made online at www.DirtyPaloma.com or by calling the library at 978-373-1586, ext. 621. Kurtag’s “Kafka Fragments” is one of his most virtuosic works, not only due to its length, but also its technical difficulty. Completed in 1987, this work of contemporary chamber music for a soprano and violin duo is composed of brief fragments from the diaries, notebooks and letters of short-story writer and novelist Franz Kafka. The concert is less than an hour long.
