The great French maestro Pierre Boulez celebrates his 90th birthday with this concert conducted by the leading interpreter of his music, Peter Eötvös. Two major works by Boulez himself – the Book for Strings, a work of great depth, delicacy and textural beauty, and his 'ceremony of memory' for his fellow-composer Bruno Maderna, scored for eight different instrumental groups - frame a work that he reveres, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.
