It was with great sadness that MusiCB3 learned that the composer and conductor Pierre Boulez died on 5th January at the age of 90.

Utterly impossible, of course, to do justice in this modest space to THE giant of 20th century music. Utterly impossible to even begin to encompass his influence on the course of music in our time. Utterly impossible at this point in time to be coherent about the legacy he has left not only as a composer but also as one of the world’s most respected conductors. However, it is surely the case that without Boulez, the course of 20th century music would have been very different.
