Incise (1994/1995) by Pierre Boulez
for piano

Incises, composed nearly forty years after Douze Notations (1994), another brief work for solo piano, is concentrated in its musical thought. Working with only limited material, Boulez focuses on certain idiosyncrasies of the piano, both in terms of its sonic quality and as regards performance practice.
