Notes & Reviews:

Pierre Boulez (1925-2016) started conducting in order to perform his own music and to champion major 20th century composers such as Debussy, Bartók and Stravinsky. He ascended to great heights in the classical world performing the grand repertoire of Wagner and Mahler (but avoiding Brahms). These recordings offer a foretaste of his conducting genius and allow us to remember a great artist the world recently lost.
