Colloque « Kylwiria and Other Explorations », Univ. of Music and Performing Arts Vienna/RCH Institute for Musicology, Vienne/Budapest, 10-13 mai 2023.

« With its titular reference to “Kylwiria”, which is the name of an imaginary country that Ligeti dreamed up as a child, this conference to mark Ligeti’s 100th birthday is placing its focus on the composer’s inventive and exploratory thinking as it relates to his compositional techniques and hence also to philosophical and aesthetic aspects. With reference to a large number of Ligeti’s compositions, the themes to be covered include the role played by explorative strategies and decision-making processes, engagement with scientific concepts, observations from the natural sciences and instances of their creative transference and exaggeration, and Ligeti’s ambivalent relationship with utopias. At the same time, discussion will also be devoted to new ways of approaching Ligeti’s music and his compositional thought that have become more visible in recent years. Included here will be critical reflection upon his self-portrayals, his analytic engagement with music, and his comments pertaining to his own works. »
