György Ligeti was a magician among composers. His music spins fantastical webs and plays impossible games, makes the listener gasp in wonder and, in some cases, laugh out loud.
Among the generation of composers who burst on the scene after World War II, Ligeti was utterly distinctive, and counted among his obsessions Fractal Geometry, African music, spiders webs and Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland.
Highlights included performances of Ligeti's Etudes by Pierre-Laurent Aimard, a selection of concertos by Aurora Orchestra and a Southbank Sinfonia Family Concert.
