There is always something refreshing about Ligeti’s music. It never fails to awaken my spirits, and carry me with the sheer power of its intensity and necessity. Ligeti never really repeats himself, inventing new challenges and solving new problems every time he writes a new piece. Sometimes the exploratory nature of this approach results in a dead alley, but it is a small price to pay for the greatness of his art when he gets it right.
