IAn album that bridges musical worlds, with the Molto Adagio of Samuel Barberís String Quartet No. 1 offered as tonal terra firma between Gyorgy Ligetiís restlessly shifting first and second quartets. Mid-20th century, Barber and Ligeti would have been considered aesthetic opposites. ďLigeti was all about leaving what for Barber was solid homeĒ, Paul Griffiths notes in the liner text. From a contemporary perspective both composers are voices from the past, their present-day relevance emphasised in these committed performances. ďPhysically actualized in the recording, the music is being all the time remade by the performers searching for what a motif can convey and finding an abundance of expressive contours in Ligetiís quartets as much as in Barberís. The gesture of lament is common to both.Ē The first of the recordings heard on this album was made in 2007 on the first anniversary of Ligetiís death, Hungaryís foremost string quartet paying tribute to the great innovator of modern Hungarian music. The 2011 recording of the second Ligeti quartet documents also a change in the line-up of Andras Kellerís ensemble, with Zsofia Kornyei, widely considered one of the outstanding violinists of her generation, replacing long-serving Keller Quartett member Janos Pilz.
