Douze Notations

Pierre Boulez was born in 1925 in Montbrison in the Loire region of France. He is a composer, analyst, conductor, pedagogue, and musical statesman and has created a number of important institutions devoted to working towards the solutions of the major issues and problems confronting contemporary music: first and foremost, the problem of the music's dissemination, and the indispensable evolution of its relationship to the public; and no less important, the problem of developing the technological tools essential for the evolution of musical thought and invention.
