We'll Always Have Darmstäd...

Tonight is the final night of The Essence of Ligeti at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, at Alice Tully Hall.

Tonight's program includes The String Quartet No. 2 (from 1968) which is among my personal favorites of Ligeti's chamber work--the Arditti String Quartet recording of it is highly recommended. And on the subject of Second String Quartets, Wolfgang Rihm's is still vastly underated, as is most of his later work. You can read an informative interview with Rihm here.
