About

Pierre Boulez directs his fetish repertoire: Debussy and Stravinsky, two great musical language innovators of the 20th century.

Boulez, born in 1925, is a leading composer and an influential conductor of contemporary music. His groundbreaking Debussy interpretations Nocturnes and Images freed Debussy from cliché.
