Pierre Boulez Profiled, New Release Reviewed

Source: burning ambulance.

My latest acquisition is Composer, Conductor, Enigma, a 4CD set from Cherry Red that gathers many early works by Pierre Boulez, including Sonatine for Flute and Piano, Polyphonie X for Ensemble, Le Marteau sans Maître, and Pli Selon Pli. But the third and fourth discs also contain recordings of Boulez conducting pieces by Anton Webern, Arnold Schoenberg, Varèse, Stravinsky, Stockhausen, Nono, and Berio.
