- someone didn't read Ligeti's instructions......it's supposed to take 16 minutes.....
- I've read/heard somewhere that organ builders hate this piece... now I can understand why...
Otherwise I still love it.
- Very sonorous.
- Very sonorous.
- That's the most intelligent comment in this thread! It's absolutely a piece of atmosphere music and interesting to see what sounds you can create with an organ. I don't want to listen to it every day, but its a nice experiment.
- This is music is beautiful and was clearly made by someone who knows a great deal about manipulating sound. He just created what others would have made through synthesis.
- retarded talk
- What are you talking about? This is beautiful.
- Wow, how closed-minded folks can be! If you were expecting Bach, you had unrealistic expectations. That is not what the composer intended. I love it because it shows how incredibly powerful and versatile the pipe organ is. What amazing effects he gets from this instrument. I thought it is was really cool.
- I'm reading a lot of negative comments about this piece. I myself am an organist and I'm not the least bit "offended" by this. In fact I'm fascinated. I AM offended however when people have to post such negative comments about pieces like this. A piece doesn't have to have melody, etc to be considered music. Like a lot of Ligeti's music, I believe he tries to create an atmosphere. So if you're not comfortable calling this a piece of music, fine, call it a piece of atmosphere.
- The towel fling is funny.
- this is a very striking organ music.. I have long waited to see how to play this, since I only have audio recording of this piece.. and about the sheet music; I don't think the sheet music is easy to find, to read and to play..
- It's so sad to watch stuff like this...how people waste their lives.
- Who dare call that shit MUSIC ! That's an offense to the thousand talented composers that worked before Ligeti.
- retarded unoriginal reply
- retarded comment
- retarded piece of music
- I hope that this video doesn't give the impression that was the whole piece! It was a very shortened version of which there was at least 3 minutes missing. Still its nice to see it played on a "real organ", as I was at live performance many years ago when it blew the organ's fuses! Right, we never got to hear it then.
- I listend to this at school today, I had a very good quality there - and I got really afraid when I heard the beginning!!!
- I think there is one pipe out of tune...one or two I am not shure now.
- I love how he used a towel to play the gigantic cluster at the beginning.
- suoer!!! pieber grüsse aus Kolumbien. Das besste war, ein Priester beim Werkeln zu sehen. Ein temperamentvoller Priester. Das ausschaltel war auch sehr lustig

- the new wii's organ hero? or like Captain Hook as pianist in Shrek or Tangled... may be...
