In 1982, Ligeti wrote his Horn Trio, calling it a homage to Brahms. It was an important turning point in Ligeti’s musical style, when his modernist aesthetic shifted and he began to look back to the past. The superb Nunc Ensemble performed both the Ligeti and the Brahms horn trios side by side, as well as works by Rakowski and Ferneyhough. In this video Sebastian Currier, Artist-in-Residence, Miranda Cuckson, Michael Atkinson, Blair McMillen, and David Rakowski take the stage to discuss the concert after the performance.
