  • September 17, 2003 Great music! A must have!

    I wasn't going to write a review since I'm a horrible writer as you will see, but I know I just had to write a review. Never have I have heard such great contemporary piano music before.. Ligeti's Etudes are genius and very extraordinary. They don't...

    sound as random sounding and as cold (not to say I don't appreciate them) like lots of contemporary piano music. They are unique and extraordinary that they wouldn't be classified into any catergory and aren't avanteguarde even and come after avanteguarde. If you are serious into playing the piano and want to be a professional pianist this is a must. If you can read music buy a cd with the music and follow the music along. For one who is studying to be a composer like what I'm doing should have the score as well. Buy the 1st book as well. Yes, the price is ridicious, but pay no attention to it. The music may inspire or and impress you. If you want more information about the music feel free to email me at
