Original

2 Preludes and Interlude from "Le Grand Macabre". for 12 car horns. 6 door bells. Composed by Gyorgy Ligeti. 1923-2006. For 12 car horns. 6 door bells. 3 player. This edition. ED 21334. Saddle-stitch. Chamber Music without Piano. Grade 4. Performance score. Composed 1974-1977. 8 pages. Duration 2 minutes. Published by Schott Music. SD.49019306. ISBN 9790001181723. Ligeti's two-act opera in four scenes, 'Le Grand Macabre', is intense, brilliant music theatre between parody and grave seriousness, between folly and wisdom. His one and only opera, which is exceptional in the entire 20th century, is full of absurdities. Therefore, it is no wonder that the 'Overture' is a prelude for 12 car horns. Three players operate four horns each by using their hands and feet according to the precise notation. As endless as the possibilities to perform this curiosity with the help of our separate edition may seem, as great is its entertainment value. Prelude to the first scene. Intermezzo. Prelude to the third scene.
