Concerto for Violin and Orchestra by György Ligeti Violin

In the original score of the violin concerto György Ligeti challenges the interpreters of his work to invent their own solo cadenza.Thomas Adès gladly accepted this invitation and wrote a cadenza for the violinist Peter Heersthal in 2011. Adès adhered strictly to Ligeti's specifications and wrote a fast-paced solo piece that exploits melodic material from all five movements and from which the final orchestral coda emerges as an inevitable result.
