“I am like a blind man in a labyrinth, feeling his way around and constantly finding new doorways and entering rooms that he did not even know existed.” With these words György Ligeti once described himself and his extraordinarily undogmatic way of composing. Led by François-Xavier Roth, the Boulez Ensemble explores three of Ligeti’s fascinating scores, written over the course of two decades. Michael Barenboim takes on the solo part in the spectacular 1993 Violin Concerto.
