This Music Should Not Exist

György Ligeti’s life was filled with drama. He escaped Nazi extermination in a Jewish labor camp and eventually fled totalitarian oppression at the hands of the liberating Soviets in Hungary. His music’s dense melodic webs and conflicting rhythms—along with a host of other experimental sounds, shapes, and forms—embody the dreams, fantasies, and nightmares of a life lived on the edge. Alarm Will Sound tells Ligeti’s incredible story through a blend of music and recorded sounds in a concert that resembles a live podcast.

Delightfully complex and thought provoking. Seemed as though the ensemble hadn’t had its warm-up but this added to the difficult beginning piece. Very exciting material.
