Kafka’s The Metamorphosis tells the grotesque story of a man who wakes up one day to find he has been transformed into a giant insect. Because he is unable to communicate or make his way in the world the man is locked into his room. Ligeti’s Horn Trio and Janacek’s On an Overgrown Path are juxtaposed with the melancholy and the struggle in Kafka’s story.
