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.
