The Boulez Ensemble and Daniel Barenboim present the opening of the Pierre Boulez Saal at the Barenboim-Said Akademie in Berlin on 4 and 5 March: at the inaugural concert of the hall, Boulez’ works Initiale and sur Incises will be performed together with Alban Berg’s Chamber Concerto and other works.
With an area of 850 square meters the Pierre Boulez Saal is modular space that can be configured in a variety of ways by reconfiguring its tiers.
