György Ligeti worked in Hamburg as a professor for composition from 1973 until 1988. I joined his class in 1974 and was with the different stages of his class all the time except one year from 1979 on in the U.S. with Ben Johnston, a microtonalist who then came visiting Ligeti in the 80s.

I will talk about his experiences with the different philosophies in the Ligeti class from neo-romanticism to fractalism to microtonality.
