A compact jewel of a piece: Ligeti's Hamburg Concerto

I’d like to write about my recent experience playing Ligeti's Hamburg Concerto, which I had the privilege to perform last week (Sep. 19) for the opening concert of the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music.

It was a privilege for many reasons; not only was it the opening concert of the festival, but also the Polish premiere of one of the most important, highly regarded, wonderfully bizarre and extremely cool pieces ever written for the horn.
