An inspired idea to couple Ligeti with Haydn: both composers deftly moving from humour to seriousness, from darkness back to light in the twinkling of an eye. It helps that they are helped by an artist of the calibre of Wosner, whose technique, control and musical instincts are second to none. Both Haydn concertos are superb with lithe, period-feel accompaniment from the Danish players; Ligeti’s concerto starts off at a tremendous lick and the tension never lets up until the quicksilver finale. Essential listening.
