In Memoriam Pierre Boulez (19)

Monday 11 January 2016, a few words by Hervé Boissière, medici.tv's founder and managing director...

"A great man passed away on Tuesday, 5 January. Being an incomparable scholar, a trained mathematician, a thinker and a musical theorist, as well as a great teacher, a visionary composer and a revolutionary conductor, Pierre Boulez was faithful to the Platonic tradition whereby the poet serves the city and contributes to political life. Both France in general, and Paris in particular, owe some of their most prestigious musical institutions to him, including the Ensemble intercontemporain, the IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique), the Opéra Bastille and the Cité de la musique, which is complemented by the famous Philharmonie de Paris that was finally inaugurated just one year ago. Naturally, one of the first exhibitions planned by the latter institution was dedicated to both Mr Boulez's career path and his substantial contribution to the world of culture.
