  • May 16, 2015 archetypal modern masterpiece

    This is a seminal work of 20th century organ repertory, the definitive example and a masterwork of its type. It uses graphic notation throughout, indicating the flow of a varied series of clusters of notes, almost never specific pitches, no specific rhythms. The work is not melodic or harmonic as...

    such, rather a variegated sound-collage of dynamics and timbre, in the style of much electronic music of the time but composed for a wholly natural acoustic medium. The composer said that the title meant "cavities" and depicted his feelings when the Soviet union invaded Hungary, his homeland.
