Teldec's invaluable Ligeti series continues with The Ligeti Project IV
, featuring the 2002 revision of the Hamburg Concerto
for horn and chamber orchestra with four obbligato natural horns. Its seven short movements explore different facets of Ligeti's unique sound world. Harmonically adventurous, this is an accessible work, witty, dramatic and full of startling sonorities. There is brilliant playing here by all, especially virtuoso horn soloist Marie Luise Neunecker. The disc's earliest piece is the Requiem
(Ligeti set only four movements of the traditional Mass). Completed in 1965, the Requiem
centres on the large chorus, whose thickly written "Kyrie" fugue (best known from its use on the soundtrack of 2001: A Space Odyssey
) and over-the-top wild "Dies Irae" place enormous demands on the singers that are brilliantly met here. In between the larger works come the 1972 Double Concerto for Flute and Oboe and Ramifications
, a quarter-tone piece for 12 strings from 1969. For all their advanced tonal and rhythmic gestures, they make for fascinating listening, like everything else on this disc. --Dan Davis, Amazon.com
