World premiere performance of Boulez piano work in Carnegie Hall!!

Last Monday, Ralph visited the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, Switzerland, to study the manuscript of an unpublished, large piano work by Pierre Boulez: Prélude, Toccata et Scherzo from 1944. He has gotten exclusive permission to perform the world premiere of this piece on October 28, 2018, during his Carnegie Hall debut performance and to subsequently record it for Naxos!
