Notes & Reviews:

"Ligeti is not a particularly unfriendly composer to the ears. His ideas are not invariably loud of soft or always dissonant, and the sonorities are not so dense that you cannot appreciate the details of the music. Also, he is not concerned with similar sound in every piece. There is real variety here." - D. Moore, ARG
