Event Info

The Ligeti Quartet named themselves after the Hungarian composer György Ligeti (1923-2006), inspired by his kaleidoscopic musical outlook and tireless invention.

Gyorgy Ligeti wrote two massive and massively influential string quartets, about 15 years apart. In those 15 years Ligeti transformed from being Bartok’s uncontested successor to becoming the guru of a new world of micro-sonic discovery. Both of these quartets changed the musical landscape, for everyone else, forever. Hear them at Long Play!
