Boulez, Pierre Anthemes 1

Violin Solos - Unaccompanied

  • Boulez, Pierre

    Anthemes 1

    20th Century (1991). Pierre Boulez wrote two pieces for solo violin, called "AnthŠmes" I and II. This is the first and shorter of the pair and was composed in 1991 for the Yehudi Menuhin Violin Competition. Taking inspiration from childhood memories of Catholic church services, Boulez created a piece of two distinct sonic worlds, in seven short parts, ending with a "col legno battuto", characteristic of Boulez's witty humour.
