When I listen to music, I like to listen to it, not analyze it. Some composers, however, beg you to do both. I’ve always felt that music should be an end in itself, that structure, instrumentation, style, performance devices, and the like should only be looked at after the fact to demonstrate why a piece is successful or not.
But Boulez is one of those who prompt a different listening approach, a different response, and I’m not sure whether that’s a strength of his or a weakness. He is also involved in making technology an integral part of music. Arguably all composers have done that in one way or another, but Boulez in particular has devoted years voulez seeking a more harmonious and natural relationship between electronics and instrumental performance.
He also treats most of his other works as “works in progress. For those who haven’t heard it or are unfamiliar with Boulez ‘s style, it might be described as a kind of extension of what Stravinsky might have composed had his time come later, and had he been genuinely attracted to atonal music, not just dutifully attracted as he was in the s when he wasted his time on serial music.
Then, too, there is a typically understated French quality to Boulez ‘s music — almost a sort replns Impressionism.

The music is less complex and the invention just as fresh. The work was inspired by Paul Claudel ‘s play Le Soulier de satin, and Boulez ‘s title refers to “the double shadow.
