The geometrical distinction between a point and an area might well describe the difference between Karlheinz Stockhausen’s “Punkte” and Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s “Photoptosis.” The former is a quasi-“atomistic” music that is structured through events whose rhythms, colors, and dynamics are precisely calculated. The latter represents a composition of sonic fields inspired by the monochromatic paintings of Yves Kleins, whose middle section is a virtuoso collage of varied styles, eras, and quotations. Pierre Boulez combines these two key works of the postwar years with two classics from the Second Viennese School, thereby demonstrating in a nutshell both the continuity and the stylistic diversity of the development of Austro-German music in the 20th century.

Without question, “Pli selon pli” ranks among Pierre Boulez’s major works. The composer took his title from a poem by the Symbolist Stéphane Mallarmé. In “Remémoration d’amis belges” (“Remembrance of Belgian Friends”) Mallarmé describes how the fog over the city of Bruges lifts “pli selon pli” (“fold by fold”) – a process that Boulez elevates to a formal principle. Throughout five movements he creates an ever more sharply detailed portrait of the poet. Boulez achieves this not through a conventional musical “setting” of Mallarmé’s verse but instead by translating the poetry into musical parameters. “A kind of ‘staging’ is what operates here: It puts the emphasis at times on direct articulation of the text, at times on the poetic world which this awakens. An intellectual theater, if you will, set in motion through the reading of the poem and the reverberation which it triggered internally.”

Pierre Boulez has put together a purely French program for this year’s opening concert of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY. We’ll hear from four generations of composers, from Maurice Ravel to Marc-André Dalbavie. In fact this musical journey takes us even further back in time, for, amid the horrors of the First World War, Ravel’s “Tombeau de Couperin” pays homage to the French harpsichord players of the 18th century. The other works on the program further show that the musical language developed by French composers continues to maintain its independence to this day. For example, Olivier Messiaen’s “Chronochromie” makes a complex rhythmic system directly perceptible to the ear through its consistent use of varying timbres. In his “Concertante il suono,” Marc-André Dalbavie looks back to the baroque model of the concerto grosso, transforming it into a fascinating form of spatial music.

An hour before the concert, Marc-André Dalbavie will be interviewed by Roland Wächter.
