Pierre Boulez conducts Stravinsky's Firebird

Pyramide du Louvre

A fantastic concert to celebrate the 85th birthday of the Maestro.

Composer and conductor Pierre Boulez is renowned for his interpretations of twentieth-century music, and especially the work of Igor Stravinsky. His inspired performance in December 2008 of The Firebird and Fireworks, with the dynamic Orchestre de Paris, proved to be no exception to this rule. Held inside the spectacular Louvre Pyramid before a rapt audience of two thousand people, it was a truly extraordinary musical event.
