Since Greg (Monkey Greg) has jumped on the GMG saddle again and seems to be enthused by Ligeti’s music, it’s time I update my list:

(In no particular order)

Études
Lontano
Lux Aeterna
Six Bagatelles
Clocks and Clouds
“There will be sunshine again and the violins will sing of peace on earth.” - Closing line from Weinberg’s Symphony No. 6, Op. 79

Ah cool. Didn't know about this thread. I'll wait until my SONY Masterworks set arrives and give those a spin before I make any lists, there a still a good number of works I haven't heard.
Great lists here!
