Boulez, who had been unable to conduct recently due to increasing eye problems, died “peacefully” Tuesday at his home in Baden-Baden, Germany, said his assistant Marion Thiem. “Pierre Boulez made French music shine throughout the world,” French President Francois Hollande said Wednesday in a statement. “As a composer and conductor, he always wanted to refl ect on his era.” Born in Montbrison, France, on March 26, 1925, Boulez initially studied mathematics as a youth before switching to music. He studied harmony at the Paris Conservatory with composer Olivier Messiaen and had lessons from Rene Leibowitz in the dissonant 20th-century style known as twelve-tone composition. His compositions include the Second Piano Sonata from 1947-48 and “Le Marteau Sans Maitre (The Hammer Without A Master), a setting of surrealist poetry by Rene Char for six instruments and alto voice.
