Boulez and the Violin

Was recently turned on to this piece by fellow Obie and violinist Yuri Popowycz,

Anthemes 2 is a piece for violin and electronics composed by Pierre Boulez the last living composer/conductor of a generation that included Karlheinz Stockhausen, Luigi Nono and so on… These composers studied directly with Olivier Messiaen and took the theories of serial and 12-tone music,  pioneered by Arnold Schoenberg and the Second Viennese School, into the latter half of the 20th century.

I have also attached some videos corresponding to a few of the composers mentioned above. Enjoy! ppp
