Written in December 1968. Ligeti started with the idea to write for a concert like movement for each of the five instruments. During work on this opus it grew and thus there are ten movements now, as after each solo movement there is a ensemble movement.
The last movements ends in a grand pause of ten seconds and with a citation from "Alice in wonderland" by Lewis Caroll.

The title is ridiculous and the exercises are hard to bare for the neighbourhood. But after a longer break in playing or before concerts they are great to make the embouchure flexible and smooth.
Partitioned like a cure of ten days with several exercises for each day. It is all about changing register and extreme dynamics. The exercises help to make the lips flexible.
