      > Lost the post now but someone was asking about Gyorgy Ligeti earlier in the week. Yep, GL's Requiem is a v powerful work and the Piano Etudes are varied & fascinating. I carry a torch for 'Melodien', whose shimmering rainbow-after-downpour tone seems at the far pole from Requiem. Also the rhythmically-prismatic Piano Concerto, a tremendous witty bravura performance in parameter-testing. For beautifully-doomy threatening stormed skies over South Lancs emerging out of the eternity between the order to fire and Eastern-Bloc-dread try 'Lontano'.

His son Lukas, a technically-dazzling drummer (matey with Henry Kaiser), is a real chip off the old block in term sof curiosity about what you can do to experiment with music's parameters. His visit to Ivory Coast's musicians 'LL & Beta Foly' is v enjoyable, as is his large-scale work 'Groove Magic' (someone please release this).
