Sorry about the mono quality, this was from the days were I wasn't aware of that (and didn't care much), I hope there'll be some interest in this, nevertheless!
The applause after #1 has been deleted, as well as some coughing and noise between a few of the parts of Boulez' oeuvre.
I left in the FM intro for information, it's in German.
