A guide to György Ligeti's music

I'm talking not just about our inevitable demises, and the end of things as we know them, but something even bigger: the heat-death of the universe. That's how Thomas Adès describes the essential quality that he hears in György Ligeti's music, in every piece the Hungarian composer wrote, from his earliest works before he fled to the west under cover of sackcloth in a train during the Hungarian Uprising of 1956, to the very last music he wrote in the years before his death in Vienna in 2006. That creative journey encompasses some of the richest music of the 20th century, and reveals an imaginative world of dizzying variety and expressive power. It's no surprise that of the entire post-war generation who were at the forefront of the avant garde in the 1950s and 60s, it's Ligeti who is played the most.

There are, however, constants in Ligeti's musical imagination. Reading this on mobile? Gyorgy Ligeti - Requiem. György Ligeti.

Alongside the better-known 'clouds', those great, luminous, drifting fogbanks of colour and harmony shot through with solar flares of extreme timbres and registers, the clarity and precision of the early chamber music provide intriguing clues to his later development, whilst the most recent work included . . . offers us clear proof that he never stopped creating unexpected and fascinating sounds and gestures.

Gyorgy Ligeti's Music Was a Constant Surprise

The music of Ligeti (lig-it-tee, without an accent), who died yesterday in Vienna at 83, was used to convey the eerie strangeness of fresh discovery in Stanley Kubrick's film "2001: A Space Odyssey. " Although he did not write the so-called "2001 music" -- those 90 seconds of ultra-familiar grandeur taken from Richard Strauss's tone poem "Also Sprach Zarathustra" -- the furious buzzing of Ligeti's work for unaccompanied chorus, "Lux Aeterna," is the soundtrack for several key scenes, and it is impossible to imagine the film without it. Another work used in the film, "Atmospheres," shimmers out of silence, its clusters of sound meeting and melding through time and space. George Ligeti. Since my recent trip to see György Ligeti‘s extraordinary Opera Le Grande Macabre, I’ve been trying to find out a bit more about the composer.

George Ligeti

I’ve stumbled across a few of his works, including some very strange and difficult piano pieces which I might put up here sometime. However, I thought it would be nice to acknowledge probably his most famous work particularly because it came up in a previous post. Lux Aeterna (“Eternal Light”) can be thought of as a kind of postscript to the Requiem and its text comes from the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead (in Latin): Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es. Requiem aeternum dona eis, Domine; et lux perpetua luceat eis. Although the piece is officially dated later than Ligeti’s setting of the rest of the Requiem Mass, the compositional technique he used seems to be similar and its emotional feel seems also to belong with that longer work. 3226060.

LIGETI György (1923-2006) Gyorgy Ligeti:Download Classical Music by Gyorgy Ligeti from György Ligeti's Private Passions. BBC Radio 3's Private Passions is one of my favourite radio programmes.

The format is deceptively simple. Personalities from the arts and public life are asked to play the music that is important to them, and explain why. Central to the success of the programme is the presenter Michael Berkeley, who has pretty impressive credentials. He is a well known broadcaster and journalist, son of Sir Lennox Berkeley, was a very successful Artistic Director of the Cheltenham International Festival of Music, and is one of our leading contemporary composers with commissions including a Concerto for Orchestra for the 2005 BBC Proms season.

The programme has led me on several invaluable overgrown paths, including those to Swedish pianist Jan Johansson, and Norwegian singer Radka Toneff's sublime interpretation of Weill. In 2005 Private Passions celebrated ten years of broadcasting. Published an eponymous book (right) compiled by Michael Berkeley. Biografia de György Ligeti.

The subject matter is matched by the outrageous libretto, which includes long passages in which characters hurl absurd insults at each other ("Piddlepants! " The opera was recorded more than ten years ago for Wergo (6170-2). Another major change is that this recording is sung in English. The singers rise to the challenge.

Though audiences with more mainstream tastes may wonder why, György Ligeti's string quartets are currently all the rage with performers and labels. With what might be thought of as unfortunate timing, the Béla Quartet's recording on Aeon comes out at the same time as the new Armida Quartet's debut on AVI (8553298) which aptly couples Ligeti's Métamorphoses Nocturnes with quartets by Bartók and Kurtág.

These follow the Keller Quartet on ECM New Series this past summer (2197), and the JACK Quartet a year ago on Wigmore Hall Live (0053), on which they uncompromisingly offered Ligeti's No.2 alongside works by Cage, Xenakis and Pintscher. The Parker Quartet on Naxos in 2009 (8.570781), the Artemis Quartet on Ars Musici (AM 1276-2) and the Hagen Quartet on Deutsche Grammophon (DG 474327) all add significantly to the competition. The premiere recording prize went to the now defunct LaSalle Quartet, to whom Ligeti dedicated the Second. Byzantion Contact at
