György Ligeti: Six Bagatelles, For Wind Quintet, by the Ouranos Ensemble

Ligeti’s legacy work of riotous rifts

With quick chromatic runs and atonal clashes, this piece is an agitating listen. Here, the quintette manages to coordinate the pauses and breaks expertly which also adds to the urgency of the work. Born in Transylvania in 1941, György Ligeti work is both unconventional and persuasive. Ligeti’s legacy spans a number of schools and features in a number of Stanley Kubrick films, where his work gained widespread familiarity. Hear the pressing melodies of Gyorgy Ligeti here.
