. . . mit 13 Bläsern

The Penitent Wagnerite goes a little Enregistrement de Boulez, que me veux-tu? The Berg Chamber Concerto is a piece which helps me as a musician, by refusing to let me settle into any fixed opinion on’t. When I first heard it as an undergrad, it fired my musical imagination to a degree comparable to my first audition of Le sacre du printemps. Yet as I have revisited the concerto from time to time, that fire has proved elusive. My ears, and their dance with the Berg Chamber Concerto: an ongoing lesson. And as a good student, I don't yet know the end.

(Love the wind scoring of the accompaniment, for only one thing.)
