Abstract:This scholarly essay compares the violin concertos of György Ligeti (1990/1992) and Unsuk Chin (2001). The composers met as teacher and student at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg in 1985. Chapter 1 includes biographies of Ligeti and Chin and also discusses additional connections between the composers. Chapter 2 is a comparative study of the two violin concertos, emphasizing Ligeti’s influence on Chin’s concerto, and studying six musical parameters: pitch, motive, texture, timbre, form, and the use of overtone series. Ultimately, Chin’s ingenious musical writing is shown to go beyond Ligeti’s influence.
