Ligeti

7th Brunch & Lunch Concert

A very special Ligeti is presented by the Ensemble Labyrinth, an ensemble formation of the Philharmonia Zurich. The focus here is on György Ligeti's early chamber music works before his escape from Hungary in 1956.

More lyrical and influenced by Hungarian folklore is Bölcsötöl a Sírig (From cradle to grave). The 1948 work for soprano, baritone, oboe, clarinet and string quartet was found by an ensemble member after extensive research in Ligeti's compositional estate at the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel and will be premiered on 3 February.
