For his whole work is irrelevant to the needs of his epoch. On the other hand, those who knew him well often referred to his loyalty, both to individuals and to organisations. Boulez read widely and identified ProustJoyce and Kafka as particular influences. He was a keen walker and, when he was at home in Baden-Baden, spent the late afternoons and much of the weekends walking in the Black Forest. In its obituary, The New York Times reported that "about his private life he remained tightly guarded".
Boulez was one of the leading conductors of the second half of the twentieth century. In a career lasting more than sixty years he directed most of the world's major orchestras. Boulez gave various reasons for conducting as much as he did. He gave his first concerts for the Domaine musical because its financial resources were limited: "I told myself that, being much less expensive, I would have a go myself. The French litterateur and musicologist Pierre Souvchinsky disagreed: "Boulez became a conductor because he had a great gift for it.
Not everyone agreed about the greatness of that gift. Smokers Delight - Various - Temple Of Science the conductor Otto Klemperer he was "without doubt the only man of his generation who is an outstanding conductor and musician".
It's as simple as that That's why he conducts Bach, Beethoven or Webern in exactly the same way. According to Peter Heyworth Boulez produced a lean, athletic sound which, underpinned by his rhythmic exactitude, could generate an electric sense of excitement.
The ability to reveal the structure of a score and to clarify dense orchestral textures were hallmarks of his conducting. He conducted without a baton and, as Heyworth observed: "there is no trace of theatre—not even the rather theatrical sort of economy that was practised by Richard Strauss. Boulez's ear for sound was legendary: "there are countless stories of him detecting, for example, faulty intonation from the third oboe in a complex orchestral texture," Paul Boulez* - Pierre Boulez conducts Bartok wrote in The New York Times.
Boulez also conducted in the opera house. His chosen repertoire was small and included no Italian opera. Apart from Wagner, he conducted only twentieth-century works. Things might have been different had his collaboration with Wieland Wagner not ended prematurely. Of their work on Wozzeck and Parsifal Boulez said: "I would willingly have hitched, if not my entire fate, then at least a part of it, to someone like him, for [our] discussions about music and productions were thrilling. When the Frankfurt Wozzeck was revived after Wieland's death Boulez was deeply disillusioned by the working conditions: "there was no rehearsal, no care taken over anything.
The cynicism of the way an opera house like that was run disgusted me. It still disgusts me. Their plan was derailed by the political fallout from the student protests. Boulez withdrew in solidarity. In the event Boulez conducted only specific projects—in productions by leading stage directors—when he could be satisfied that conditions were right.
Thanks to his years with the Barrault company, the theatrical dimension was as important to him as the musical and he always attended staging rehearsals. Peter Stein initially agreed but withdrew in According to Allan Kozinn the production "helped open the floodgates of directorial reinterpretation of opera" sometimes known as Regietheater.
He updated the action to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, using imagery of the industrial age,  and he achieved an unprecedented degree of naturalism in the singers' performances.
His other preferred director was Peter Stein. From the mids Boulez spoke of composing an opera himself. His attempts to find a librettist were unsuccessful: "both times the writer has died on me, Asta - Ludwig Hirsch - Tierisch I'm a bit superstitious about looking for a third candidate". Boulez's first recordings date from his time with the Domaine musical in the late s and early s and were made for the French Vega label.
In Universal Music brought together the recordings from this period in a CD set. Between and he recorded for Columbia Records later Sony Classical. The LSO also contributed to the Webern edition which Boulez supervised, consisting of all the works with opus numbers.
A particular focus of the Columbia years was a wide-ranging survey of the music of Schoenberg, including Gurrelieder and Moses und Aronbut also less well-known works such as the unaccompanied Held Down - Claude* - Distances music.
Three operatic projects from this period were picked up by other labels: the Bayreuth Ring was released on video and LP by Philips; the Bayreuth Parsifal and Paris Lulu were recorded for Deutsche Grammophon. In the s he also recorded for the Erato label, mostly with the Ensemble Intercontemporain, with a greater emphasis on the music of his contemporaries Berio, Ligeti, Carter etc. From onwards Boulez recorded under an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon. Composers new to his discography included Richard Strauss, Szymanowski and Anton Bruckner —his recording of the Eighth Symphony met with particular acclaim.
In addition, many hundreds of concerts conducted by Boulez are held in the archives of radio stations and orchestras. Occasional releases provide a glimpse of the wealth of material they contain. From time to time in the early part of his career Boulez performed publicly as a pianist, usually as part of a mixed programme in which he also conducted orchestral or instrumental music.
In he accompanied the tenor Jean Giraudeau in a recording of songs by Stravinsky and Mussorgsky. According to Jean-Jacques Nattiez Boulez was one of two twentieth-century composers who wrote most prolifically about music, the other being Schoenberg.
Generally he avoided publishing detailed analyses, other than one of The Rite of Spring. As Nattiez points out: "as a writer Boulez is a communicator of ideas rather than of technical information. This may sometimes prove disappointing to composition students, but it is no doubt a peculiarity of his writing that explains its popularity with non-musicians.
Boulez taught at the Darmstadt Summer School most years between and He also taught privately in the early part of his career. An article published for Boulez's 80th birthday in The Guardian revealed that Boulez's fellow-composers had divided, Megérkeztünk - Bartok* sometimes equivocal, views about him.
According to George Benjamin "[Boulez] has produced a catalogue of wondrously luminous and scintillating works. Within them a rigorous compositional skill is coupled to an imagination of extraordinary aural refinement". For Oliver Knussen he was "a man who fashions his scores with the fanatical idealism of a medieval monk minutely illuminating volumes".
By contrast, John Adams described him as "a mannerist, a niche composer, a master who worked with a very small hammer". Alexander Goehr thought that "[Boulez's] failures will be better than most people's successes".
When Boulez died in January he left no will. During his lifetime, he entered into an agreement to place his musical and literary manuscripts with the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, Switzerland. In October the large concert hall of the Philharmonie de Parisfor which Boulez campaigned for many years, was renamed the Grande salle Pierre Boulez.
It is a flexible space, designed by the architect Frank Gehrywhich is home to a new Boulez Ensemble, made up of members of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, the Berlin Staatskapelle and guest musicians from Berlin and around the world.
