"Ligeti’s work [Le Grand Macabre] is indeed a difficult task and the requirements for the orchestra and performers are very high. Luckily, the Eduardo Mata Youth Orchestra of the University, under the musical direction of Ludwig Carrasco, was adequate for this work and he achieved positive results via the control of orchestra, good management of tempi and excellent coordination with the singers."
