Highlighting the première recordings of Etudes 16-18, this is the perfect remedy for over-exposure to Ligeti's poly-rhythms and abounds in thrilling contrasts. Above all, it sensitizes the ear in a remarkable way to Ligeti's innovations in phrasing and musical structure. The Ligeti pieces are offset by two entirely different but significant elements. The first is the complex, predominantly vocal music of the Aka Pygmies from sub-Saharan Africa, a crucial structural element of which is an instrumental ostinato in fast time, against which the voices set short-breathed phrases of irregular length. African Rhythms: Gyorgy Ligeti, Steve Reich, Pierre Laurent Aimard, Simha Arom.
