About

György Ligeti (1923-2006) counts among the most eminent figures in music history. Numerous of his works have entered the collective memory of human mankind and essentially belong to the international concert repertoire of today.
 
This new CD release includes brilliant new interpretations of three concert works from different stages in Ligeti’s artistic career. Fascinating sound extremes in his Cello Concerto from the sixties meet the ludicrous theatricality of his Mysteries of the Macabre from the seventies and the stunning polyrhythmic effects of his Piano Concerto from the eighties.
 
All three works here are presented by celebrated soloists of the younger generation and the internationally acclaimed Plural Ensemble from Spain under its chief conductor and composer Fabián Panisello.
