Notes and Editorial Reviews
Pierre Boulez was a musician exceptionally eclectic, a composer of the vanguard of the 20th Century, he also was an incredible conductor that was able to leave his personality in the most famous pages of the erpretoire. In the Boulez's interpretation the most listened compositions seemed new and extraordinary and completely unheard. Among the authors loved by Boulez, Igor Stravinsky filled up a leading role as this live recording of Sacre du Printemps and other symphonycal operas made in Paris can attest. An album absolutely essential for all the lovers of one of the protagonists of the music of the 20th Century.
