Pierre Boulez is arguably the single most influential - and controversial - figure in the world of contemporary music. As composer, conductor and personality, his challenging views of modern developments are lent a special authority by his very high standing as an interpreter of great composers like Wagner, Debussy, Bart k and Stravinsky. This collection of writings enhances his unrivalled reputation as a lucid and compelling expositor of the modern composer's world.

From the Back Cover:

'Collected here in some 500 pages, is perhaps the most comprehensive and provocative statement of an aesthetic position mustered by a musician since Schoenberg.' ---New Statesmen

About the Author:

One of the most gifted and challenging composers of our time, Pierre Boulez (b. 1925) has achieved equal status as a conductor, notably of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and New York Philharmonic, and at Bayreuth. He is the founder and director of the world-renowned IRCAM Institute in Paris and of the associated Ensemble Intercontemporain.
