Conductor Pascal Gallois writes of this new release: “For this recording, I was keen to bring together two major figures of the 20th century: Arnold Schoenberg for the first half-century and Pierre Boulez for the second. I collaborated with Pierre Boulez during the last few decades of his life and I also performed many works by Schoenberg under his direction. Boulez often pointed out that starting in the early twentieth century contemporary music engineered by Stravinsky on the one hand and Schoenberg on the other. Schoenberg's masterpiece - he was only 25 when he composed Transfigured Night in 1899 - in a poetic piece by the symbol of the German Romanticism (and of tonal music), along with a work by Boulez dating from 1984, Dérive 1. This recording yet again demonstrates the phenomenal qualities of Dimitri Vassilakis' interpretation of Boulez, and his qualities as a pianist transcending a phrasing of wonderful intelligence and sensibility. In this album, Dimitri also offers a new "mirror" version of the 3rd sonata, in addition to the world premiere of Boulez's Fragment of a sketch for piano. We warmly thank the composer's family and assigns, who kindly granted us permission to record this final score.”
