Boulez in the jungle

Reading time: 1 min.

Distracted from his composing and iconoclasm by the necessity of earning some money, a young Pierre Boulez found work with a Parisian theatre company. Three trips he made with them to South America changed him and his music forever. (Robert Worby, The Guardian, 26 January 2017)
