The winners of the prestigious Polar Music Prize for 2022 make their first-ever Texas appearance! The legendary Ensemble intercontemporain was founded in France in 1976 by composer and director Pierre Boulez, and is dedicated to the performance of contemporary music, music of the 20th and 21st century. Under the direction of world-renowned conductor Matthias Pintscher, the Ensemble presents Schoenberg’s early twentieth century masterpiece, which the composer wrote “seeks to express all that swells in us subconsciously like a dream” and its co-founder Pierre Boulez’s kaleidoscopic, propulsive Dérive 2.
