With his opera entitled Three Sisters, Péter Eötvös won several international prizes, among them the Diapason d'or de l'année (France), the ECHO Preis (Germany), the Prix Caecilia (Belgium). The chief piece of his new vocal album, to which he has given the title Two Monologues, intertwines two original parts from the Three Sisters opera, the arias of Tuzenbach and Andrei. The four additonal pieces on the album offer a comprehensive historical survey of those works of Péter Eötvös that investigate the possibilities afforded by various languages and the human voice.
