George Benjamin conducts the Bavarian RSO and Pierre-Laurent Aimard for a rule-breaking programme that includes a Tristan Murail premiere. Ligeti, Murail and Benjamin. The concerto’s interweaving of the orchestra with the piano lines – a solo part conceived for Pierre-Laurent Aimard – is often very beautiful, but then it’s a real treat to hear the Bavarian Radio Symphony, one of Europe’s great orchestras, playing all the music on this recording. Benjamin’s performance of Ligeti’s Lontano, a 20th-century classic, is exceptional for its transparency and its wonderfully controlled sense of mystery, as if the real key to the music is always just out of reach.
