Pierre Boulez, a committed advocate of both Stockhausen and Ligeti, saw the fascination in Ligeti’s phonetic writing in 1962 with Aventures;  he recognized the challenge Stockhausen made to the linear lay-out of a score with Kreuzspeil and Kontra-Punkte, and will now conduct Stockhausen’s final opus [Five More Star Signs].
