From Musical America Worldwide, April 7

The following is from a review by Wynne Delacoma of a concert given on April 3 by members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and guests paying tribute to Pierre Boulez, three of his works and two premieres written in his memory were played.

“But I didn't know how much I missed him until Monday night's concert reminded me of the gifts he gave Chicago. I miss his searing intelligence, his genial manner, his conducting, and the steady diet of his own evocative, mysteriously intriguing, color-filled music.”
