Hungarian composer György Ligeti is unquestionably one ofthe great composers of our time. In most fields of composition he hasdiscovered new means of expression. Many of his works contain analmost Haydn-like sense of fun. He has been variously influenced byhis immediate Hungarian musical forefathers, the Western avant-garde,the American experimental tradition (the player-piano music of ConlonNancarrow) and non-European musical traditions (including Caribbean,central African and Asian).
Peters Edition publishes six classic works by Ligeti from the 1960s.
