  Ligeti  John Robertson at 06:38 on 13 June 2006

Terrible news about Ligeti. He's one of the few modern composers I am totally unequivocal in my love for. His music is so fresh and original.

I agree, I heard it on the radio last night and was genuinely shocked. His chamber concerto is one of my favourite pieces, I love the way his music is so serious yet so humorous. Totally recogniseable yet totally unimitable - a true great!

My favorites have to be the Requiem (so so perfect), the etudes, and Lontano. I'm definitely gonna' learn one of the etudes now.

What a loss. Really the end of an era for many people.

It was terrible news indeed. Im learning the Etudes, such perfection within disorder. The whole lot of his stuff is so .... amazing

Requiem is amazing - very scary indeed and containing Ligeti's famous vocal-music techniques!

The series of Nonsence Madrigals are also very original and show his quirky side quite nicely.
