Notes & Reviews:

It was with 'La Marteau sans Maitre', a setting of surrealistic poetry by Rene Char, that Boulez made his international breakthrough in the mid-1950s. The work, which looked far ahead into the compositional future, has lost none of its intense power to seduce the ear. "Boulez interpreting his own works: that means a certain sobriety and severity but also a certain felling for splendor and a wealth of colors." - Die Presse, Vienna

Gramophone Magazine
Boulez's fifth recording of Le marteau sounds more urgently volatile than ever in this superbly crafted performance (5/05).
