Format : LP
Cat N° : HM 930
Style : Contemporary

This 1971 recording of Pierre Boulez’s “Domaines” features clarinetist Michel Portal and members of Ensemble Musique Vivante, conducted by Diego Masson. It’s a seminal interpretation of the piece, known as one of the defining works of the 20th century, noted for its innovative use of circular material shared among performers and the flexibility in movement order. Although the visual aspect integral to Boulez’s concept is missing in a recording, it effectively showcases the modernity and virtuosity demanded by the score. However, it’s best suited for die-hard modern music enthusiasts due to its challenging nature. Despite some tape hiss, the Ensemble Musique Vivante delivers a skillful and courageous performance.
