  • April 27, 2012 Excellent pieces

    This is a wonderful early piece. All 12 are playable. Some are studious emulations of Webern and Schoenberg, but they hold up very well, mainly because each one is a intense compression of some mode that Boulez had identified in the modernist practices of the moment. Each piece is exaclty...

    12 bars long, which is itself an astonishing self-imposed restriction, an a fitting emblem of what Babbitt later called “total serialization.� It would be possible to catalog most, or all, of the twelve pieces by showing what they truncate and intensify in other composers’ practices. I think that number 10, “Mécanique et très sec,� is a parody of Webern’s dryness. Number 4 is the most inhumanly precise of all. The left hand doesn’t change: it repeats the same one-bar motif 12 times. The right hand plays a series of extraordinary syncopated variations or counterpoints. Wonderful music.
