Boulez - Messiaen - Webern ~ RAI National Symphony Orchestra / Marco Angius ~ 20 February 2015


Here's an RAI3 live broadcast from Turin last night;

Pierre Boulez ~ Livre pour cordes

Olivier Messiaen ~ Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum

Anton Webern ~ Six pieces for large orchestra

Pierre Boulez ~ Notations I – III – IV – VII – II for orchestra

RAI National Symphony Orchestra / Marco Angius
Turin Auditorium, 20th February 2015

There's also an encore, which I think is one more of Boulez's Notations, but I can't place it at the moment so any help in identifying this would be appreciated.

Andreas - it's a small chapel called Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista, in the village of Mogno in Val Lavizzarra (Ticino, Switzerland). The architect is Mario Botta, whose work I greatly admire. Definitely worth visiting if you have the opportunity to do so.

The encore's a straight repeat of Notations II, which they just played. (There are supposed to be 12 but Boulez has only finished 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7 so far.)

I'm checking up on the state of the RAI Orchestra... John's head is missing...

I suffer from dyscalculia so I can't really notate much of anything musically. But I still enjoy most of Boulez's results.
