Boulez's memorial disc, a true hit! The apostle of avant-garde music in his element, the premiere members of the magnificent "Gruppen"! This is the third and most important memorial project for Pierre Boulez (1925-2016), following ALT-343 and ALT-345. Gruppen", a work synonymous with avant-garde music, and others, first performed live in Vienna in 1959! The Gruppen was premiered in 1958 by the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Stockhausen, Maderna and Boulez. This disc is a live performance by the same ensemble only one year later. The three avant-garde composers and conductors are recorded as they conduct each other rigorously with a firm hand, and there is a tremendous sense of tension. It is a pity that this is a monaural recording (there were no stereo broadcasts at the time of composition), but as long as the recording exists, there is no reason not to listen to it. Please pay attention to this great document that should be preserved in history.The text of "Breaking Songs" is one of NONO's most famous works, based on letters written by victims of persecution during World War II. NONO, STOCKHAUSEN, and BOULEZ are known as the "three glasses of glass" of the contemporary music world, and have led the avant-garde music world. This live recording of a rare and exciting concert in which Boulez shook the works of these two musicians will surely overwhelm you with the greatness of Boulez, a fighter who sadly passed away in 2016, and the extraordinary enthusiasm of avant-garde music at its peak!
