First published in 1994. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
"A goldmine of information…this is probably the single most important examination of a Boulez composition." -- Jason Gibbs of Notes
"An important part of the work is dedicated to a minute analysis of my Marteau sans Maître. I was very much impressed by his knowledge and acute sense of analysis." -- Pierre Boulez
"It is still the greatest single step forward in Boulez studies so far published…and serves to renew one's admiration for the fact that such eloquently febrile music should stem from such coolly calculated mazes and matrices. The mystery may be reduced, but the magic is enhanced." -- Arnold Whittall of Music and Letters
"Legions of serial analysts…will study and quote from it for some time to come. Koblyakov's penetration of Boulez's compositional processes is extraordinarily deep and thorough." -- F. Goosen of Choice
