Ligeti- Inspiring music 60 years on

A quote from composer Gyōrgy Ligeti could equally apply to some creative photographers today ''I am in a prison, one wall is the avant-garde, the other is the past. I want to escape.'' It is hard to believe that his ‘six bagatelles’ were banned from performance by the Hungarian government in 1956 citing dissonance that posed a danger to the public. Six short pieces, six moods. Magical inspiring music full of colour. Two movements played here by the excellent Carion wind quintet.
