Alarm Will Sound

György Ligeti’s life was filled with drama. He escaped Nazi extermination in a Jewish labor camp and eventually fled totalitarian oppression at the hands of the liberating Soviets in Hungary. His music’s dense melodic webs and conflicting rhythms—along with a host of other experimental sounds, shapes, and forms—embody the dreams, fantasies, and nightmares of a life lived on the edge. Alarm Will Sound tells Ligeti’s incredible story through a blend of music and recorded sounds in a concert that resembles a live podcast.

Alarm Will Sound

Just over forty years ago, the Beatles and composer Karlheinz Stockhausen arranged to meet in New York City to plan a joint concert. No such performance would ever take place. But its tantalizing promise is the departure point for Alarm Will Sound's 1969. Told through their own words, music, and images, 1969 is the story of great musicians—John Lennon, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Paul McCartney, Luciano Berio, Yoko Ono, and Leonard Bernstein—striving for a new music and a new world amidst the turmoil of the late 1960s.
