I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of mr. Ligeti. His music has left a deep impression on me and i truely respect his contribution to the art- the world is richer today because of his work. I can only hope that my kind of respect will also be expressed by the broader music world.
Ligeti's open-minded and natural individualism reminds us that some of the greatest artists cannot always be boxed into a simple ism, and that the very nature(s) of isms, as a historical-artistic concept, are always open to suspect.
