The opening concert of the Salzburg Festival, for many regarded as the world’s most renowned music festival, is by tradition a high-profile event. In 2008 the official Salzburg Festival opening concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra was conducted by Pierre Boulez, once the "enfant terrible" of the musical world, now a sensitive, analytical conductor of works from the 19th and 20th centuries. Combining Béla Bartók's Piano Concerto No. 1 - Daniel Barenboim is the soloist - with Maurice Ravel's "Valses nobles et sentimentales" and Igor Stravinsky's "Firebird" ballet in its full-length version of 1910, Boulez weaves a compelling musical texture that uncovers the links among the three works and the three composers.
