Dedicated to the Swiss conductor, patron and impresario, Paul Sacher, on the occasion of his 90th birthday, the Victorian premiere of this Grawemeyer Award-winning work is presented by Argonaut during the 90th year of the composer. Although a divisive musical identity, Boulez is an undeniable musical force. The rigour and focus he demands of others is applied to his own work, which is widely recognised as being in a constant state of revision. sur Incises is a milestone in timbre, rhythm and gestural exploration from the great French composer and conductor.
