The Chamber Concerto is the clearest link between Ligeti 's supersaturated textural music of the 1960s, and the harmonically clarified, polyrhythmic pieces of the 1970s (Monument-Selbsportrait-Bewegung for two pianos) and the early 1980s (the Horn Trio).
Ligeti's Chamber Concerto 31 canons. In the first movement the complexity of the texture is quite distinctive (especially, for example, bars 47-50 and the final six bars). By contrast, the third movement of the Chamber Concerto reflects one of Ligeti's recurrent obsessions: that of mechanical objects in general and clocks in particular - also seen in the Poeme Symphonique (1962) for 100.In works such as the Chamber Concerto, Melodien and the Double Concerto for flute and oboe Ligeti pushes this style to its limits, creating a compellingly strange musical world, at once eerie and beautiful.Ligeti's Cello Concerto (1966), which is dedicated to Siegfried Palm, is composed of two movements: the first begins with an almost imperceptible cello which slowly shifts into static tone clusters with the orchestra before reaching a crescendo and slowly decaying, while the second is a virtuoso piece of dynamic atonal melody on the part of the cello.
In the Cello Concerto and the Chamber Concerto, Ligeti in different ways explores the idea of the concerto as something collective, rather than polarised between the one and the many. The Cello Concerto is striking, and even provocative, in that the soloist often seems to aspire to silence and even absence rather than virtuosic display.
Like the Cello Concerto and the Piano Concerto Melodien can be performed by large orchestra, but also, as on the present recording, with a single string player per part, becoming a natural pendant to the Chamber Concerto. The disc closes with the Piano Concerto from 1988, which Ligeti had begun sketching eight years earlier but was only able to proceed with after having composed his first set.
While composing the concerto, Ligeti originally planned an eight-movement work. Parts of the music for the unfinished movements were used by Gawriloff and Ligeti for the cadenza in the final movement, which Ligeti asks the performer to devise as an alternative to the already existing cadenza.

The Chamber Concerto for 13 Instruments (five strings, four woodwinds, two brass and three keyboard - so actually 14!) was composed between 1969-70 for the Viennese ensemble Die Reihe. Arnold Whittall points out that this work differs dramatically from the Cello Concerto in that “all the players (including the cellist) are unmistakably present, all essential to the design and character of.

In his Hamburg Concerto Ligeti, inspired by the tonal possibilities of the natural horn, explores alternatives to the well-tempered tonal system. In the orchestra piece he juxtaposes the solo horn with four differently tuned natural horns in the chamber orchestra version.
In the Chamber Concerto, several layers, processes and kinds of movement can take place on different planes simultaneously. In spite of frequent markings of “senza tempo,” the instrumentalists are not given linear freedom; Ligeti insists on keeping his texture under strict control at any given moment. The form is like a “precision mechanism.” Ligeti was always fascinated by machines.
