Boulez Boulevard perhaps, although Laboratoire Boulez might be more appropriate.

I like "Laboratoire Boulez."  Sounds like a slightly upscale restaurant.  ;D

Happy Birthday, Pierre!  Later today I'll put on the headphones and listen to what is perhaps my favorite Boulez recording, Répons.

Much of Boulez strikes me as a French pastry... mmm mmm good, but leaving no lasting impression after the fact. A sort of atonal new age music.  Repons is not like that at all; it definitely sticks with one, and I might go so far as to say that if Boulez has composed a masterpiece, Repons is it.

I've just picked up the Jumpannen Piano Sonatas disk and have been spinning the first quite a bit.  While I still don't quite have an understanding of his language, I find I enjoy it and find it interesting and a little more within grasp upon each listening.  The few seconds of the second sounds like a tougher nut though.  Also been listning to Livre Pour Cordes quite a bit.   

Happy birthday dude.

From the Juxtapositions Docu series...


 

That's the DVD I watched for the past two afternoons and am fascinated by it. I am great fan of Pierre, though I don't understand a note he is saying. His music is challenging me to understand his language, not just love the sound of it. The video of Sur incises shows a skilled camera team!

How can music be "attractive but dangerous"?

A curious thought . . . what would make music "dangerous"?

Well I guess the feeling engendered within me by hearing Nickleback would be dangerous for the members of Nickleback.

It's possible that what the mailman brought me today is of interest here:

A medici arts issue: Juxtapositions, five DVD of 5 Films on the Greatest 20th Century Composers.

Boulez - Carter - Glass - Messiaen - Pärt.

I have not had time watching it yet.

Just came across this hilarious clip:

"Badass Boulez" 8)

(At about 45 seconds in you'll see why.)

Happy Birthday, Pierre Boulez!  He's 84 today.  About two weeks ago I saw him with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and he looked more like 64--amazing.
