Overview

Teldec's groundbreaking Ligeti series is released as a box set at budget price. This 5 CD set features works that enchant both the ear and mind. The box features favorites such as Lontano. Its refined tonal colors make it one of the most elegant pieces in the modernist canon. The Berlin Philharmonic performs Apparitions, Ligeti's first success in the West after his escape from Hungary during the 1956 Soviet invasion. Under its colorful façade, San Francisco Polyphony demonstrates how uncompromising modern music can be. Concert românesc harks back to Bartók's transformations of folk material. Rich in color and vitality, its four movements are full of the dissonances of village bands and melodies rooted in Romanian folk music.

György Sándor Ligeti (1923-2006) was born in Romania to a Hungarian Jewish family and lived in Hungary before later becoming an Austrian citizen. Many of his works are well known in classical music circles, but to the general public, he is best known for the various pieces featured in the Stanley Kubrick films 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, and Eyes Wide Shut. -- From the Label
