"This study excels all previous monographs on the subject of Ligeti in factual thoroughness and breadth of aesthetic horizon, in fineness of intellectual portraiture and authority of musical analysis." (Lutz Lesle)
"The most exciting, comprehensible, analytically profound and conceptually lucid study to date, which, in addition, for the first time incorporates the sketches in the discussion and thereby elucidates the basic ideas underlying many of the works." (Fonoforum)
