"Captivating. One of the unique aspects of Ligeti's music is his ability to project dense, chromatic webs of sound with an almost Mozartian clarity; this disconcerting sensation is masterfully reproduced in this performance of Ligeti's Requiem by conductor Michael Gielen. The finale--calamitous, but strangely withdrawn--represents the composer at his most dramatic. And yes, this is the music Stanley Kubrick used to accompany the discovery of the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Also on this disc are two other essential works, 'Aventures' and 'Nouvelles Aventures', highly comic, highly theatrical, justly celebrated choral works." --Joshua Cody
