Boulez seemed to be a very insecure composer. We all know he had a big mouth. If he claimed to be dissatisfied, it really ment that his own abilities to produce anything remarkable within it were lacking and the results were less than stellar. And he was seeing what an esteemed colleague of his was getting done within the medium and thinking out of slight jealously .. damn, I could have never come close to that and i tried, must withdraw ..

nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. — Françoise Gilot
