Boulez Mass

Announced in the French press: “Un hommage sera rendu jeudi à 16H00 en l’église Saint-Sulpice à Paris au compositeur et chef d’orchestre français Pierre Boulez, décédé mardi dernier à 90 ans à Baden-Baden en Allemagne, a annoncé lundi sa famille.” 

Below, a clip from Messiaen’s Le Banquet celeste, played by the chief organist Marcel Dupré, a contemporary of the composer.  I don’t know whether there  will be a full  Mass or a memorial , but it’s a good place to remember  Pierre Boulez.  Please see my post on the relationship between Messiaen and Boulez, and the church of Sainte Trinité.which is rather too small to fit everyone in
