… explosante-fixe … at the Southbank Centre

Reading time: 1 min. Pierre Boulez



... explosante-fixe … is not a message, I would say, that reflects Stravinsky’s influence on me. Stravinsky himself gave a similar example when he wrote the wind symphonies in memory of Debussy, because these wind symphonies distinguish themselves in terms of timbre, form and musical ideas from Debussy. With … explosive-fixe …  it's the same. (Pierre Boulez)

Matthias Pintscher and the ensemble intercontemporain will perform Pierre Boulez‘ monumental ...explosante-fixe... on 14 October at the Southbank Centre in London.
