Pierre Boulez’s Carnegie Hall debut in 1965 was the start of a 45-year relationship that included his curation of the Hall’s first Perspectives series in the 1999–2000 season and his tenure as the Debs Composer’s Chair from 1999 to 2003. He was also the first to be named composer in residence at the Salzburg Festival in 1992, where he frequently conducted and premiered new works. Leading the festival’s opening concert in 2008, Boulez is joined by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for a program that features Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales, Stravinsky’s The Firebird, and Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Daniel Barenboim.
