La Première Sonate pour piano de Pierre Boulez

Arnaud de Mezamat, Elisabeth Coronel
Composer : Pierre Boulez
France, 1995

With the support of SACEM

Tënk's film review

This detailed analysis of Pierre Boulez’s Sonata No.1 (1946) opens with a brief portrait of the composer himself. Alongside the pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Boulez unlocks his work, bringing it out of obscurity to help us understand it better by taking us into the very texture of the sound. This piano sonata marked an important break in music history, and it forces us to re-attune our modern ear to grasp the full power of what is pure energy in motion.
