Boulez enthrals South Bank audience in London

He is the most influential composer of the second half of the 20th Century and at 86 Pierre Boulez is still writing new works.

In his native France, Boulez is a cultural icon -- with huge influence and power in the musical scene.

At the weekend a major retrospective of his work was staged at London's Southbank Centre -- and the maestro himself was there to conduct.

Our correspondent Alexander Kan was there to watch.
