BOULEZ ENSEMBLE XXI
SHOSTAKOVICH, FRANCESCONI, BEETHOVEN
Two Pieces for String Octet Op. 11
Daedalus for Flute and Ensemble
Ludwig van Beethoven
Trio for Piano, Flute, and Bassoon in G major WoO 37
Following its successful world premiere last season, Emmanuel Pahud, Daniel Barenboim, and the Boulez Ensemble once again explore the complex sonic maze of Luca Francesconi’s Daedalus: a work of fascinating ambiguity that revolves around the ideas of order and chaos, reason and emotion. Completing the program are compositions by Shostakovich and Beethoven, as well as the late Elliott Carter’s Flute Concerto, premiered in 2008 by Emmanuel Pahud.
