Pierre Boulez is celebrating his 85th birthday on the 26th March 2010. This documentary adopts the perspective of the Lucerne Festival Academy participants to get across what is so special about the summer academy, marked above all by the personality of its founder, Pierre Boulez. Like no-one else, Boulez has influenced the development of new music since the War. Lucerne Festival Academy offers a unique opportunity to observe Boulez methods and plug in to his thoughts about music. Bonus: a complete Concert of Debussy s Jeux and Boulez Notations & Répons recorded live at the KKL Lucerne, September 2009.

There was an even more intrusive, pointless break in Jeux.
to a live audience with some of the solo instruments behind as well as in front
of the audience. So I was hoping this would presented in full 5.1 sound. Sadly
its only in Stereo.
The DVD is however very interesting if you like Boulez,his talents and his teachings.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The filmmakers follow Boulez' cue, structuring the film itself with commendable lucidity and professional visuals. It helps tremendously that the Lucerne summer festival provides beautiful location footage. Although Boulez remains an ambiguous personality, he is devoted to what he loves and, in his advanced years, he remains remarkably active in order to ensure the survival of contemporary music. Only the most jaded viewer will be unimpressed. Equally valuable is some of Boulez' recollections on peers such as Bruno Maderna.
A delightful and valuable example of music on film that is not only an apt homage to an unquestionably great composer, conductor, and teacher, but also a homage to the younger musicians following the lead of the veteran avant-gardist. Boulez seems in no hurry to slow down and we can only hope that he will have many active years ahead of him.
