In his Piano Études Ligeti was strongly influenced by Nancarrows Studies for Player Piano. Ligeti wanted some of his Études to be transcribed for the Player Piano and he wanted "unplayable" arrangements. The transcriptions were made in close collaboration with the composer.
Nearly all Contemporary Original Compositions for Player Piano were influenced by the genius Studies for Player Piano of Conlon Nancarrow. The composers James Tenney, György Ligeti, Michael Denhoff, Steffen Schleiermacher, Tom Johnson, Wolfgang Heisig, Francis Bowdery, Krzysztof Meyer, Gerhard Stäbler, Daniele Lombardi, Kiyoshi Furukawa, Adriana Hölszky, Bernhard Lang and also the supervirtuoso Marc-André Hamelin -- they all used the superhuman possibilities of the Player Piano. This clip was recorded with a Bösendorfer Ampico Grand, finely restored by Jörg Borchardt according to Nancarrows directions. See www.playerpianokonzerte.de and www.nancarrow.de
