"So fuck Doubleday Doran"
KarlHeinz Stockhausen passed away last week. Yesterday, Ike Turner.
Gyärgy Ligeti (May 28, 1923 - June 12, 2006)
Now I'm really depressed. I didn't know Ligeti was gone. Somewhere I have a score of his Requiem. Amazing stuff.
So who's left from that era? Boulez, Penderecki...
I once heard Penerecki's Threnody and Ligeti's Atmospheres on the same program.
He was rather an egomaniacal asshole, too. He became infamous for a quote, evil when taken out of context and incomprehensible when quoted in full, about Sept. 11 being a great work of Art.
Nah - you'll get better because your posts aren't infected, just your sinuses.
A speedy recovery to you !
