The only works of art that are interesting to me are those which allow for a change of perspective Pierre Boulez
Just like the Pierre Boulez Saal, the Boulez Ensemble embodies flexibility and programmatic openness. Whether presenting solo pieces or works for a multitude of different combinations of instruments, the ensemble’s concerts are focused on the inspiring juxtaposition of the Classical and Romantic repertoire with compositions from the 20th century and music of the present day. Vivaldi, Mozart, Stravinsky, Hindemith, Schoenberg, Boulez, and Francesconi—these are just a few of the composers whose works the Boulez Ensemble performs this season, led by its founder Daniel Barenboim as well as notable guest conductors, offering an opportunity to look and listen beneath the surface and beyond the familiar.
Led by Daniel Barenboim, the Boulez Ensemble presents music by Mozart, Hindemith, Jacques Ibert, and Iraqi-born composer Solhi Al-Wadi. The concert led by Oksana Lyniv will focus on works by Igor Stravinsky and his transition from “Russian” to neo-classical style.
The Boulez Ensemble is a flexible group with no permanent members, changing its lineup from concert to concert. Explore this continuously expanded selection of individual artists’ biographies.
