When Ligeti taught composition at the University of Stockholm in the 1960s, he met his famous Swedish fellow composer Hilding Rosenberg (1892-1985). Ligeti wrote this musical greeting on the occasion of Rosenberg's 90th birthday. The little piece is easy to play, composed idiomatically for the instruments. It shows that Ligeti, like Bach, Schumann and Bartók, was able to write easily playable and at the same time tonally convincing music in his personal style.

  • February 18, 2009 Beautiful title.

    Unfortunately it was not rated and I bought it many years too early for my playing level but it is an intereisting and nicely made title.
