In case you haven’t heard, Musical Legend and icon Pierre Boulez turned 90 last week. It’s been a major cause for celebration in the music world; with concerts, marathon disc sessions and floods of tributes from colleagues and fans wishing him many-many more.

And Radio France Musique has been getting in the spirit of things by running a number of classic concerts from Boulez’ long and highly productive career.

So this week it’s a concert from 2005, featuring L’Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France led by Maestro Boulez in familiar works. Starting with Ravel‘s Ma Mère L’Oye (Mother Goose), Claude Debussy‘s Nocturnes and finishing with Stravinsky‘s Firebird Suite. All familiar works, but all associated with memorable performances by Pierre Boulez.

Recorded live on November 9, 2005 by the venerable Radio France Musique at the Théâtre du Châtelet à Paris.

Enjoy.
