By scarecrow VINE VOICE on February 21, 2005
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
these interviews are relatively old prior to the Eighties,just when Boulez began guest conducting orchestras within the United States with extended stays as with The Cleveland Orchestra,endorsed by George Szell.
The materials here focus on the early period,the three Piano Sonatas,how each Sonata explored differing concepts and situations where time became expanded and contracted, the First Sonata through two contrasting ideas, the sustained sound, and the pointillistic one,projected within a highly virtuosic context with resonances, great timbres from all registers of the piano. This idea later expanded to full tilt in the longer brutal Second Piano Sonata, and the disintegration of rhythmic, intervallic cells, that come to the surface in great clariy, or come to one as if a lamenting sould looking for nourishment in time,time being like an "oxygen" for intervals.The Flute Sonatine as well is discussed,cut from the same field as the First Sonata,and we find the excitement of expanded 12 Tone technique and when these works became first published by Amphion,also some discussion on the more rarified air,the dodecaphonic developments in his latter 'structures for two pianos', where electronic timbral thinking was the focus almost the infinite array and distribution of the row, although Boulez saw the reiteration of the 12 Tones to be uninteresting,and simply at times preferred to state only 9 Tones.We learn that Boulez had performed his "structures" with Yvonne Loriod on tour in Europe.There is a recording as well.
