Notes & Reviews:

"This one is easy. This CD has great music, brilliantly performed under the composer's supervision and recorded with all the immediacy of which digital sound is capable... Ligeti creates glittering carousels, seemingly of the frothiest materials, that nevertheless are meant to have the endurance of the pyramids... The present disc is currently the only way to obtain 'Melodien' and the trumpet/ensemble version of Mysteries of the Macabre. This is obviously Want List material." Fanfare
