A Slipped Disc reader explains how this picture came into being:
I was student at Manhattan School of Music. Boulez came to our school in April 2005 for a week of workshops and concerts. He was working one evening with the orchestra while at the same time our school’s Beach Boy Cover Band was performing in the cafeteria. He came through the lobby while I was talking to my friends who handed out the leis and they offered him one, which he took with a smile, and I asked to take a picture. All told it was 20 seconds, but very memorable.
