The centerpiece of violinist Movses Pogossian's "Hommage à Kurtág" is his recording of Kurtág's "Signs, Games, and Messages" for violin (there are others in the series for different instruments). Pogossian has developed a close working relationship with Kurtág, and his interpretations reflect his reverent stance towards the eminent composer as well as the input received from him. Echoing the importance of the concept of homage within "Signs, Games, and Messages", Pogossian commissioned several composers to write works in honor of Kurtág - Aida Shirazi, Gabriela Lena Frank, Kay Rhie, and Jungyoon Wie contribute new works to the project, alongside "Melodia" from Bartók's Sonata for Solo Violin, providing repertoire context.
