In 1985, György Ligeti produced a collection of six piano Études, to which he added two further volumes in the following sixteen years. Whereas the piano étude tradition of the 19th century was continued by Bartók, Debussy, and Stravinsky at the beginning of the 20th century, this tradition no longer existed by the end of the 20th century. Ligeti not only wanted to revive a great musical tradition but also to explore its potential in a contemporary form. His piano writing is not only polyphonic in the customary sense, but also polyrhythmic, poly-temporal, and even poly-ethnic. On this recording from Wergo, pianist Thomas Hell makes a powerful case for these fascinating works.
