The influence of folk music is never far away from the music of György Ligeti. As we approach the centenary of one of the twentieth century’s most individual creative voices students from the Vocal and Operatic Studies Department present a programme of his songs alongside a selection of lute songs by Guillaume de Machaut – a composer who had a distinct influence on Ligeti. Berio’s enduringly popular Folk Songs will also be performed.
