Conductor

Pierre Boulez

About

Pierre Boulez’s legacy as a conductor includes plenty of exceptional recordings: his Mahler symphony cycle, the Chéreau “Bayreuth Centenary Ring” from 1976-1980, his take on classic 20th-century composers from Bartók to Stravinsky to mention some highlights. Being a splendid intellectual, Boulez was regarded as a “national cultural institution” in France during his lifetime and celebrated all over the world as a conductor of outstanding clarity, analytical thinking and absolute precision of execution. Boulez is a central musical figure of the 20th century.
