Continuing their celebration of Pierre Boulez's 90th birthday, Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich take their program of the composer-conductor’s piano works that they have been touring across the US and Europe to the Salzburg Festival on August 9. The performance will include the Piano Sonatas 1 through 3 plus 12 Notations, Une page d’éphéméride, and a finale of Structures for two pianos, Book II.
Aimard has enjoyed a long rich personal and professional history with Boulez, and at the age of 19 was invited to become a founding member of Ensemble Intercontemporain, Boulez’s IRCAM-based chamber orchestra, of which he was then a member for many years.
