Special Daytime Pre-concert lectures. “Hearing Boulez”: Richard vonFoerster deciphers the music of Pierre Boulez:  Tuesday, Sept. 20, 9:25-10:40am; and Wednesday, Sept. 21, 9:00-10:15am; Peter Claver Recital Hall.

In January 2016, the music world lost one of its most iconoclastic personalities: composer, conductor, and new music promoter Pierre Boulez.  With his uncompromising artistic integrity and visionary creativity, he inspired generations of composers, performers, and concertgoers.  

The Playground Ensemble celebrates the achievements of this influential figure with a multimedia concert event featuring live chamber music performances and video clips.

Repertoire includes: 

  • Derive – Flute, Clarinet, Violin, Cello, Piano
  • Sonatine – Flute and Piano
  • Domaines – Solo Clarinet
  • Une page d’éphéméride – Solo Piano
  • Antheme – Solo Violin
  • also on the program, a viewing of the experimental Jean Mitry film Symphonie Mecanique featuring an electronic score composed by Boulez.
