Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Structures I (1952) and Structures II (1961) are two related works for two pianos, composed by the French composer Pierre Boulez. The first book of Structures was begun in early 1951, as Boulez was completing his orchestral work Polyphonie X, and finished in 1952. It consists of three movements, or "chapters," labelled Ia, Ib, and Ic, composed in the order a, c, b. The first of the second book's two "chapters" was composed in 1956, but chapter 2 was not written until 1961. The second chapter includes three sets of variable elements, which are to be arranged to make a performing version (H usler 1965, 5).
