You need three or five hands to play Ligeti.
Ligeti quotes
Now there is no taboo; everything is allowed. But one cannot simply go back to tonality, itís not the way. We must find a way of neither going back nor continuing the avant-garde. I am in a prison: one wall is the avant-garde, the other wall is the past, and I want to escape.
