We’ve just received the new book by Jonathan Goldman: The Musical Language of Pierre Boulez – part of the Cambridge University Press “Music Since 1900” series.
From the jacket:
“Pierre Boulez is arguably the most influential composer of the second half of the twentieth century. Here, Jonathan Goldman provides a fresh appraisal of the composer's music, demonstrating how understanding the evolution of Boulez's ideas on musical form is an important step towards evaluating his musical thought generally.”
You can read the preface and a large part of the introduction at the Cambridge University Press website.
