Notes and Editorial Reviews



Ligeti's works on this disc provide an excellent cross-section of the metamorphosis in his compositional technique over a period of 30 years. The Violin Concerto incorporates influences from Medieval and Renaissance music, from late Romantic music and various contemporary styles.

 Oh wow man - Ligeti blew my mind in 1968 July 5, 2015 By Lyman M. (Houston, TX) See All My Reviews "Certainly listening to Ligeti's music in 2001 A Space Odyssey was far outside my experience in 1968; I was amazed. In this century, Susan and I have enjoyed watching Hannu Lintu conduct the Houston Symphony a couple of times. I think he does a great job. So I bought this CD because it combined Ligeti and Lintu. I love all four pieces on in, but right now Lontano and Atmospheres are favorites. CD quality, compositions, performances are very good. 5 star rating is personal - I loved it." Report Abuse
