Usually in music all of the energy is channelled towards connection – Artaud’s text doesn’t evoke connection, but the opposite: explosion. (Wolfgang Rihm) 

Matthias Pintscher and the ensemble intercontemporain perform the German première of Rihm’s Concerto “Séraphin” on 9 September.

On 12 September, Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich present Pierre Boulez complete works for piano solo together with Structures: Deuxième Livre.

For our MusikSalon we talked to Aimard about Boulez.
