From AFP:

For the first time in its history, the Louvre museum Thursday opens its doors to a musician, France’s renowned contemporary composer and conductor, Pierre Boulez, giving the classical arthouse a modern touch.

To the French, the 83-year-old supremo of serial, experimental and electronic music born in the central Loire valley is what the Japanese call “a living national treasure”, celebrated for his unique contribution to music and to intellectual life since the 1950s.
