PIERRE BOULEZ, A PORTRAIT

Conservatoire Darius Milhaud
380 Avenue Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, 13100 Aix-en-Provence
France
04 88 71 84 20

Michael Barenboim, violin
Edgar Moreau, cello
Bertrand Chamayou, piano
Ircam computer music, Andrew Gerzso


In honour of Pierre Boulez, the composer and conductor, leader of the post-1945 avant-garde who passed away on January 5, 2016, Aix Easter Festival have asked a range of young talents to defend his music which marked its time and has slowly but surely become a milestone in the artistic history of the 20th century.

The piano virtuoso Bertrand Chamayou will bring us into the luxuriant world of Incises, a swift piece, the best moments of which are reminiscent of the frantic agitation of a free-jazz chorus.

The solo violin of Anthèmes 2 (1991-1997) will be played by Michael Barenboim and finally, the young cellist Edgar Moreau will light up the work of Matthias Pintscher who takes on Boulez, though born a half a century later.
