It's like if it's acted: Foot pace, big moon, hot night. Sounds are coming from a lake nearby. Children playing soldiers. Go to bed, now! Do not interrupt this magical moment, do not ruin this innocent night...
Boulez has a great sense of feeling for this kind of music. In his reading, all makes sense. He respects the music.
