Pierre Boulez is arguably the single most influential - and controversial - figure in the world of music today.
As composer, conductor and personality, his challenging views are lent a special authority by his very high standing as an interpreter of great composers such as Wagner, Debussy, Bart�k and Stravinsky. He regularly appears to great acclaim on concert platforms and in opera houses around the world. In these unique conversations with C�cile Gilly, he recalls not only the great moments of his career, but brings penetrating insights into the art of conducting, including his views on other great composer-conductors (Berlioz, Wagner, Mahler, Strauss). Boulez speaks unusually frankly about his own rapport with conductors as a composer, and how he sees the role of the conductor today.
