French composer and conductor Pierre Boulez focuses his activities on contemporary and modern music. He is considered one of the best interpreters of the Vienna School - Schönberg, Berg and Webern - and is deeply involved in such cornerstones of the contemporary music world as the Festival of New Music in Darmstadt, Germany, and the IRCAM institute in Paris. Boulez is also at the center of the involvement of electronics in new music, and is president of the Ensemble Intercontemporain, a group of musicians whose aim is virtuoso interpretation of modern music.
