The Chamber Concerto, completed a year earlier, is for 13 instrumentalists treated as virtuosic soloists. Each of its four movements has a distinct profile, from the polyphonic first movement, where the instruments play at different speed, to the chorale-like second, hammering third, and the final presto that builds from a menacing ostinato to the siren squeal of the clarinet at the close. Aimard is the superb soloist in the Piano Concerto. Finally, there’s the piano concerto, performed by Pierre-Laurent Aimard. Like the violin and Hamburg concertos, it comes from Ligeti’s late (third) style period, and is more conventional and stylistically eclectic than the middle period masterpieces.

Melodien, the Chamber Concerto for 13 players, and the Piano Concerto have appeared on disc before (the latter two multiple times; unfortunately, fine performances of these works on DG, Decca, Wergo, and Sony now appear to be out of print). But this recording is required listening both for Ligeti fans and for those who are just starting to explore his music. Over the years, Pierre-Laurent Aimard has shown a special affinity with Ligeti; he has recorded this concerto before with Boulez, and he has been featured repeatedly on the Sony volumes (perhaps most gloriously in Volume 3, playing the Études). Peter Masseurs is brilliant as well, snickering through Mysteries with a certain bite. GYÖRGY LIGETI - Melodien; Chamber Concerto; Piano Concerto; Mysteries of the Macabre.
