Boulez violin concerto?

August 28, 2011 at 09:12 PM ·

I heard recently that Mutter is learning a violin concerto by Boulez.

I am very curious about this piece actually.  I have a hard time imagining what it will sound like.

Does anyone know more details?

You can´t order the score yet I guess or?

 Well, it's going to be called Anthèmes 3 according to an interview that I just read on Le Monde website. Apparently he's working on the orchestration for Notations at the moment, so doesn't sound as though he's got too far with the Violin Concerto yet.

Interview is just in French I guess?

I haven´t heard any of his recent works I must say, I got the impression from an interview that Mutter is working in this concerto right now.

Maybe she got a part of the score to look at before it´s finished ;)

 Here's the link to the interview: http://www.lemonde.fr/culture/article/2011/08/26/pierre-boulez-ce-qui-m-interesse-c-est-la-pointe-de-l-invention_1563901_3246.html "qui attend" means that ASM is waiting for it. Maybe she's got something already, but it certainly doesn't sound finished.

Earlier in the interview is: Pensez-vous toujours qu'un musicien non sériel soit inutile ? Oui. Do you still think that a non-serialist musician is useless? Yes.
