György Ligeti

Real Name:
György Sándor Ligeti
Profile:
Austrian composer, born 28th May 1923 in Tîrnăveni (Romania), died 12th June 2006 in Wien (Vienna, Austria).
Studied composition in Cluj (Romania) and in Budapest (Hungary). From 1957 to 1959 he worked in Cologne at the Studio for Electronic Music of the WDR (West German Radio). He settled in Vienna in 1959 and became an Austrian citizen in 1967.
His style is characterized by a very dense polyphony (micropolyphony) and static forms (as in Lux aeterna, for choir, 1968, or in Requiem, 1963-65), and by a complex polyrhythmic technique (Etudes for piano, 1985).
