Clocks and Clouds

György Ligeti, 1923-2006

In an ideal world his obituaries would be a lot larger than those of Charles Haughey, who has also just died.

Prokofiev died on the same day as Stalin. The composer's widow was forbidden to place flowers on his grave: all flowers were for Stalin.

Beckett died on the same day as Ceausescu.
