a succesful recording of pierrot!
we should have known it was going to be boulez and his forces that finally delivered it.
oh, he attempted to many moons ago with an all star line up (which included bareneboim) on the sony label.
but, alas, it suprisingly fell flat. way flat.
now, with schafer (the darling voice of contemporary music)
and the ensemble intercontempolain, boulez has delvered a sardonic, emotional (yes, emotional!), revolutionary performance, in other words, exactly what it supposed to be!
well, so revolutionary that we STILL get people (read some of the negative reviews-too unconventional from bangcock, etc)that people are shocked by it even today.
get this, along with boulez's new recording of moses un aron before it goes away.
