Conductors Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This Juxtapositons release includes two films from highlighting the work of conductor/composer Pierre Boulez. "Eclat" is a real study of resonance written for fifteen instruments that Boulez created in 1965, a glittering jewel of tightness and rationality, a riotously colorful mixture of open-form freedom and serialist order. "Eclat" (meaning "to burst out") is a kind of "concerto for conductor", where the musicians in the ensemble play semi-improvisational material prescribed within boxes in Boulez's score. In the second film, "Sur Incises" ("A Lesson"), the composer Boulez explains with warmth, modesty and infectious enthusiasm, the hidden architecture of "Sur Incises", one of his most recent works, to a non-specialized young audience. This masterclass documentary is complemented by a concert with Boulez conducting the nine soloists of the Ensemble Intercontemporain.
