Boulez, Pierre; Lee, Alicia

“The pieces on this album were prepared and recorded in isolation, when the world changed and the prospect of collaboration became impossible. I chose pieces where I was in dialogue with myself, where I was monologuing dramatically, and where I was delivering advice to anyone who cared to listen.” Clarinetist Alicia Lee releases "Conversations With Myself", a collection of works for solo clarinet with and without electronics, chronicling a year of artistic activity in isolation. Works by Pierre Boulez, Dai Fujikura, Isang Yun, Unsuk Chin, and Hideaki Aomori make for a program that highlights music by composers of Asian descent and Boulez' iconic work exploring the dichotomy between live performance and pre-recorded material.
