Sunday Feature

Using rare recordings, Robert Worby reveals the untold story of how three trips South America in the 1950s changed Pierre Boulez's life, and how his exposure to non-western music is now changing the way we listen to his music. Robert discovers, how on his third and final trip to 1956 South America, Boulez was propelled in a new direction when the young composer conducted a symphony orchestra in Venezuela for the first time. This launched his parallel career as one of the world's greatest conductors.
