    Very complicated. The music is printed on fine quality manilla-toned paper, and the notes are easy to read. They appear to he hand-drawn. The manuscripting is just beautiful!

    I have a PhD in music theory. This title is comparable in many ways to Boulez' monumental Sonate No. 2 pour piano. It is an excellent lesson in the post WWII serial music that was being written in France. You may find the inital statement of the series, but then...

    the music takes off in its own idiosyncratic directions. you will not find the classical 'Schoenbergian' manipulations of the row, but instead complicated esoteric treatments of the series that share much with the Boulezian concept of serial composition. I would recommend buying this score after having listened to the Barraque many times. You will find following the score with the music, and then taking the score for analysis without the music, a most enriching and intellectually satisfying experience. You may even find the Boulez Sonate No. 2 "straightforward" after having spent some time with the Barraqué(!). Highly recommended.
