Listening Lab has won the Best Print Award at the Music Teacher Awards for Excellence held on the 12th March in London.
The Listening Lab series provides music educators with practical and inspiring approaches for children, young people and adults to connect with contemporary music allowing for a deeper understanding of the work.
The series so far (by Constanze Wimmer / Helmut Schmidinger and Veronika Großberger / Johannes Voit) has also received recommendations from the Association of German School Musicians.

Aimed to present an overview to the development of György Ligeti’s compositional technique over a period of 30 years, violinist Benjamin Schmid, conductor Hannu Lintu and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra have recently released a recording of orchestral works by Ligeti on Ondine.
With the Examiner reviewing it is “an excellent ‘first contact’ recording” and Music Web International describing it an “ideal place to obtain a good sampling of Ligeti’s music”, they most definitely have succeeded at that.
The recording includes Atmosphères, which is part of Universal Edition’s Listening Lab series. Here are sample pages of the bilingual publication:
BBC Radio 3 will broadcast an interview with György Ligeti from 1997 – much of which has never been broadcast – on Sunday at 19:45pm CET/CEST.
Later that night, a performance of Apparitions (BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, cond. Ilan Volkov) will be broadcast.
