Pierre Boulez (1925-2016) : young composer and conductor

In stock

Darius Milhaud, French composer of an earlier and more conservative generation, paid Boulez what must be the ultimate compliment - ‘He despises my music, but conducts it better than anyone!’. Boulez (1925-2016) started conducting in order to perform his own music and that of major 20th century composers such as Debussy, Bartók and Stravinsky, and went on to great heights with the grand repertoire including Wagner and Mahler (but avoiding Brahms). These recordings offer a foretaste of his conducting genius.
