The World of György Ligeti, Program 2: Modern Times, Dreams of the Absurd
Experience ideas that fascinated Ligeti throughout his life: theatricality, absurdity, and the mechanical devices of modern society. Then discover the music of Luna Pearl Woolf, our first commissioned composer-in-residence, in a special production of Samuel Beckett’s mime play, Act Without Words I, directed by West Edge Opera’s Mark Streshinsky. Luna Pearl Woolf is a Montreal-based composer whose work has been described by The New York Times as “by turns blazingly ardent and softly haunting.” Pianist Lucille Chung ends the program with dazzling Ligeti études.
