Ligeti Quartet plays Ligeti String Quartets
Gyorgy Ligeti wrote two massive and massively influential string quartets, about 15 years apart. In those 15 years Ligeti transformed from being Bartok’s uncontested successor to becoming the guru of a new world of micro-sonic discovery. Both of these quartets changed the musical landscape, for everyone else, forever.
