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…

György Ligeti - The Ligeti Project IV
1CD (2003) | loseless EAC flac | 250Mb | Covers+booklet | RS

This is, we are told, the penultimate release in the Ligeti Project, a series that Teldec took over from Sony. It aims to put on disc all Ligeti’s major works, performed by some of the world’s leading musicians and in state-of-the-art sound, a sort of ‘definitive edition’ for generations to come. This new disc is every bit as good as its predecessors, and follows their enterprising programming, where we get classics from his early career put alongside the very latest from his pen. The resulting juxtaposition is one of the most interesting things about the series.

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.

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.
