The Exotic

Poème: Chamber Landscapes

Pierre Boulez’s early opus magnum, Le Marteau sans maître, is an anarchistic work full of blissfully rapturous sounds. Like his French predecessor Debussy, represented here by his Violin Sonata, Boulez was inspired by exotic music. In Le Marteau, the composer creates a wholly new vocabulary based on various African and Asian traditions. Hans Tutschku’s Shadow of Bells concludes the evening with a meditative and hypnotic journey drawing its inspiration from Japanese temple bells.
