SOLD-OUT - DOME_LIVE 012 György Ligeti: Symphonic Poem for 100 Metronomes

The Symphonic Poem for 100 Metronomes is one of György Ligeti's best-known compositions, the visual aesthetic of which leaves a deep impression on all who witness it. It is no coincidence that this piece was also played at the time of his final farewell. The work is hypnotic and provokes deep reflections on the themes of time, existence and our relationship with the universe. The Symphonic Poem is also a critique of György Ligeti's contemporary musical milieu and the radical composers who saw themselves as such. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of György Ligeti's birth, we start the 100 metronomes on the screen of the Sound Dome, as the composer instructed, and listen from the centre of the magical space as the clicks run out of time, together or separately, until they are all silenced.

In the underground levels of the House of Music Hungary lies the Sound Dome. This is where the program begins, with a short film providing an unusual acoustic and visual experience, after which the visitors are shown an increasing number of similar films.
