“Boulez Dialogue de l’ombre double is an epic masterpiece, huge in scale, and demanding in terms of technique, concentration and stamina. It’s dazzling, intriguing and thought-provoking in equal measure. The spacial element of the electronic contribution, sending prerecorded sound around the hall from six speakers, is inspired. One of the biggest challenges I’ve ever taken on but worth it, without question!”
