Notes & Reviews:
György Ligeti's choral masterpiece* Lux Aeterna* is best known from its use in Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is a remarkable work that gave birth to a new musical language. This spectacular recording, which features the Capella Amsterdam led by Daniel Reuss, was originally released in 2008. Also included on the disc are Ligeti's choral work Three Fantasies after Friedrich Hölderlin and his Sonata for solo viola. Paired with the Ligeti works is Im Gestein, a cycle of lieder to poems by Paul Celan by Dutch composer Robert Heppener.
