György Ligeti: Remembering Ligeti

img  Tobias

With the eclectic program of “Remembering Ligeti” in mind, it is therefore easy to understand why Benjamin Dwyer is more than just a little excited. Dwyer is especially looking forward to the opening ceremony: "The highlight of the launch will be the Irish première of Ligeti’s avant-garde classic 'Poème Symphonique' for 100 Metronomes." As part of the Symposium team, he will himself step into the limelight to present an academic paper on Ligeti, leading the way for a total of eight speeches on various apects of the work of the composer. While some of them will concentrate on analysing the backgrounds to his 'String Quartets' and 'The Piano Etudes', there will also be a conscious attempt of outlining Ligeti’s impact on visual work in Ciaran Crilly’s 'Ligeti in film'.

“Remembering Ligeti” will be held at the Liberty Hall Theatre and the National Concert Hall.
