(someone) Blessed

Blessed with awesome powers of invention and assimilation, Ligeti may be the one living composer for whom "genius" is not too strong a word. His music shows the influence of - to make a random list - the Masses of Johannes Ockeghem, the player-piano music of Conlon Nancarrow, the saxophone solos of Eric Dolphy, the drumming of the Central African Republic, the etchings of M. C. Escher, and the imprecations of Captain Haddock in the "Tintin" books ("Blistering barnacles!").
