Practical Criticism No. 26—György Ligeti
In episode 26 of the Podcast for Social Research’s Practical Criticism series, Ajay Singh Chaudhary plays György Ligeti for Rebecca Ariel Porte, who, as usual, doesn’t know what the object of the week will be. They talk the newness of New Music, sparkling dissonance, champagne dissonance, weak shock, the poetry of Monk and Evans, generosity and difficulty, Adorno, modernism, working pluralism, theory and praxis, and more.
