“I am like a blind man in a labyrinth, feeling his way around and constantly finding new doorways and entering rooms that he did not even know existed.” With these words György Ligeti once described himself and his extraordinarily undogmatic way of composing. Once again this season, the Boulez Ensemble dedicates two “monothematic” concerts to the works of a single composer. Led by François-Xavier Roth, the musicians explore three of Ligeti’s fascinating scores.
