Mari Takano: Ligalien

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
BIS present a disc of works by the Japanese composer Mari Takano, composed between 2003 and 2009. The four duos and trios that share the title LigAlien are all results of the idea of what would it be like to implant 'alien' music into one of Ligeti's works. Interspersing the four 'LigAliens' are two solo pieces, Jungibility for piano and Full Moon for violin and electronics, which also embrace a wealth of ideas both musical and otherwise from Duke Ellington, Omar Sosa and Stockhausen (Jungibility) and Bjork, Pina Bausch and Miles Davis (Full Moon). The closing Flute Concerto is the largest work on the disc. The present recording also appears on a previous BIS disc (BIS-CD-1649), released in 2008, and the work was described by reviewers as 'a score which can move to a pop music beat without sinking into triviality or bombast' (in Gramophone).
