RIP Gyorgy Ligeti

Gyorgy Ligeti died earlier this week. He was one of the few well-known twentieth century composers who wrote music for the harpsichord, and I remember playing his Passacaglia Ungherese for my recital at the end of high school. I also tried to make sense of Continuum a few years later, but gave up after a couple of attempts. Maybe I should actually learn to play it one of these days!
