I just want to post something short today to mark the passing of Gy├Ârgy Ligeti.
Ligeti is one of the most significant and influential composers of the last century.
We can be sad that the third string quartet and his opera on Alice were never written, but we are left with a rich musical legacy.
Ligeti's music has been a tremendous influence on me and I can only assume that it will continue to be.
