Homage to a passionate structuralist and exceptional conductor

Pierre Boulez' legacy as a conductor includes plenty of exceptional recordings: his Mahler Symphony cycle, the Chéreau "Bayreuth Centenary Ring " from 1976-1980, his take on classic 20th century composers from Bartok to Stravinsky to mention some highlights. Being a splendid intellectual, Boulez was regarded as a "national cultural institution" in France during his lifetime and celebrated all over the world as a conductor of outstanding clarity, analytical thinking and absolute precision of execution. Boulez is a central musical figure of the 20th century.
