    I love Ligeti. I was introduced to him when I saw 2001 in the theater in the 60's. While ultra modern, his work has a beauty and accessibility that I find quite addictive.

    I'm in the process of acquiring the Ligeti Project (a steal on Amazon) and the 7 CD Ligeti Edition (4 to go). Great stuff - I've been listening to his string quartets lately and they are wonderful.

    The piano concerto is pure gold of modern music!!, definitely my favorite of him:

    I have the Clear Or Cloudy set, and I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't listened to the piano concerto yet. So thanks to Aleazk, I'm listening now!

    Hi,

    I am quite ignorant concerning Ligeti, I have just Ligeti's works which I appreciate a lot. What would you recommend as works and also the best recordings of it according to you?

    ^^^^^^^
    You can't go wrong with either of the very affordable box sets on the Teldec (Ligetii Project 5 CD) or DG (Clear Or Cloudy 4 CD) labels. Many of the same works are covered in both sets, but Clear Or Cloudy contains more chamber music, and the Teldec set features the requiem not included on Clear or Cloudy.

    My favorites are Volumes 1 & 3 from the Sony series, and Volume 2 from the Teldec series.

    As said I have that Ligeti Works from Sony and these CDs are also my preferates, especially Aimard. I would like to avoid buying again a set of CDs, but being more targeted on my selections, any tip?

    Hello all,

    I just bought the Teldec set and now have an extra Ligeti Project II which I will be happy to send to any interested forum member for the price of shipping. Message me if you are interested.

    Ligeti fans are saying the Chandos recording of the violin concerto is the best one yet. The Norgard concerto is excellent as well.

    it's just me, or the second movement sounds like wolves in the forest in a dark night?
