Description
György Ligeti composed one single opera, 'Le Grand Macabre'. The conductor of the world premiere, Elgar Howarth, took three arias which, due to their effusiveness, are highlights of the opera, and arranged them as a single piece for solo trumpet or coloratura soprano and two different accompaniments: with piano and with instrumental ensemble. Together with the present study score of the orchestral version three editions are now available for sale. They provide the inquisitive with an insight 'en miniature' into one of the strangest operas of the 20th century while each one of them is a brilliant concert piece on its own.
