dc.description.abstractWriting about a living composer is a little like writing an obituary for someone before he is dead. For this reason it is difficult, if not impossible to anticipate new directions and developments in their style or technique, particularly if radical changes have already been noticed. However, this was not the reason why I chose to concentrate on the works of this period, those written after his emigration to Western Europe from Hungary in 1956, which he considered to be his first major compositions. In addition to taking advantage of seeing these works in perspective as far as later developments'are concerned, one may see that his early styles of composition lay the foundations, if not the scaffolding for the 'mature'' compositions of the late 1960's. This basis is fundamental to the understanding of Ligeti's musical processes, as indeed are the political circumstances which led to his emigration into an environment which cultured his artistic development.en
