Notes & Reviews:

On this DVD, home viewers encounter Pierre Boulez, one of the most intriguing musical personalities of our times. Boulez, born in 1925, is a leading composer and an influential conductor of contemporary music. His groundbreaking Debussy interpretations Nocturnes and Images freed Debussy from cliche. Boulez, with his astonishingly precise ear for pitch and sonority, appears to understand the language of his great predecessor like no other. Here we see Boulez conducting the three pieces in recordings made in 1968 and 1974. The DVD also includes additional film footage of Boulez while conducting Images and rehearsing Debussy's Fetes Jeux. This compilation makes for a wonderful homage to an important figure of 20th century music and includes first time DVD releases of Boulez' most famous Debussy interpretations - a must-have!
