“Boulez keeps the music moving and brings welcome clarity to Pelleas' potentially murky orchestration.” — BBC Music Magazine

An exploration of orchestral landmarks by the figurehead of the Second Viennese School, Arnold Schoenberg. Pierre Boulez was arguably one of the greatest interpreters of Schoenberg’s works. Here, he presents works bridging the gap between late romanticism and modernism, marking the point of departure into the 12-tone language Schoenberg is known for establishing.
