Pierre Boulez - on audiences, composing in Bayreuth and generating controversy

[Pierre Boulez] says little has changed in the music world since he started out, in that "20% are very interested in new things, 50% can be persuaded and 30% are in their coffins before their time."

Excerpts from a fascinating interview with Pierre Boulez in today´s Guardian.

What a marvelous site! I stumbled on it quite by accident the other day while searching for a DVD review of Janacek's The House of the Dead. The next thing I knew an hour had passed as I continued to explore the many facets of your site. The Wagnerian focus is right up my alley. I found the content informative and the reviews insightful with numerous suggestions for further listening. In addition, the organizational structure makes it easy to navigate through your site. It's great that one can click on a singer or opera and bring up all the relevant posts. I look forward to repeated visits. My highest compliments.
