Hommage à Pierre Boulez

For many years now, Daniel Barenboim and Pierre Boulez have been friends on a personal and musical level. For more than 50 years now, they have enjoyed working together frequently. To them, the classic repertoire is as important as contemporary music. In 2015 the FESTTAGE concerts recognize the work of Boulez as a composer: Conducted by Daniel Barenboim, three orchestras will be performing a selection of his works, dating from the long span between the beginning of his career and the very present. A piano recital performed by the Boulez disciple Michael Wendeberg rounds off the retrospective. In addition to Boulez’ music, two important symphonies by Schubert and Berlioz and a programme with Gidon Kremer and Martha Argerich, two eminent chamber music performers, will complete our programme.
