Now celebrating his 90th year, Pierre Boulez remains an indomitable force in contemporary music – a true legend in his own lifetime. His works project an image of a brave new world, purged of historical clutter: music that breaks the rules, in his words, ‘for the pleasure of breaking them’. Facing off against two of Boulez’s iconic chamber works is Region III of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s masterpiece Hymnen – whose survey of national anthems presents a powerful portrait of a collective human spirit.
