According to some, Ligeti is about as post-modern as you can get. However, Ligeti's composition is more than just atonal, postmodern music, as demonstrated on this disc the amazingly effective use of space and time, and advanced virtuosity at the absolute service of the composer's artistic vision. In his own words: "the ironic theatricalizing of the past is quite foreign to me." Written between 1985 and 1992, the Piano Concerto and Violin Concerto together are supposed to demonstrate the full expressive range of his later works. The Piano Concerto is a whirlwind of rhythmically driven fantasies, created by precise, almost mechanical, colliding cross-rhythms, and twisted, sprightly melodies. The Violin Concerto is just as quirky and jarring, but wilder and more impassioned, less 'mechanical,' more vigorous, and ultimately the highlight of the disc.

György Ligeti- Portrait

Michel Follin’s film remains one of the finest testimonials on this insatiable inventor of sounds, renovator of musical theory and exceptional pedagogue. Portrait of the Hungarian composer is not only a complete biography, it is also a reflection on the aesthetic universe Ligeti: metamorphoses, visions, apparitions, continuum …

György Ligeti - Works For Piano And Cembalo - Erika Haase (1991)
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers | 228 Mb
Label: col legno - Date: 1991

György Ligeti continues to be prolific, and this selection has the first book of the growing collection of piano Études (1985). Erika Haase, who worked on the recording with the composer, retraces his compositional footsteps with the early Capriccios (1947) and Invention (1948) which show him distancing himself gradually from Bartok. The 11 ricercars (1951-53), the last a Homage to Frescobaldi, go beyond what Hungarian orthodoxy would allow in the early 1950s and No. 10, in its wind quintet arrangement, had too many minor seconds for inclusion in a concert - in 1956 Ligeti left his native country…

Ligeti’s Cello Concert―particularly when combined, as here, with Lontano―offers a wonderful introduction to the maestro’s music, and Siegfried Palm, to whom the work is dedicated, is its ideal interpreter.
