Anyone privileged enough to have witnessed the close relationship between Pierre Boulez and Daniel Barenboim, whether in rehearsal, in performance or backstage, will know of the profound respect and admiration that flowed freely between them. A new album from Deutsche Grammophon, scheduled for international release on 24 March 2017, celebrates the French composer's legacy as one of the most influential musicians of the past sixty years. Hommage à Boulez includes a selection of seminal works performed live by Barenboim's West-Eastern Divan Orchestra as well as Le Marteau sans maître, given under the composer's direction during his eighty-fifth birthday concert at Berlin's Staatsoper Unter den Linden in 2010. The two-disc set underlines the power of an artistic and personal friendship that flourished from the moment Barenboim and Boulez first worked together in June 1964 until the composer's death last year.
