Within the framework of the whole five-movement begio, Sinfonia listens to itself, so that its final movement does to the piece what the third movement does to Mahler. Streams Videos All Posts. Even though Berio ‘s meditations on God and death are rather free of rage or resignation — neither posture is particularly suited to the composer’s dry wit and sense of irony — he is nonetheless probing and questioning of life’s meanings, and supplies the texts with fairly unsettling, provocative music.

Others of verio favourites are number III for stanzs, composed in for his ex-wife Cathy Berberian, the voluptuously violent Sequenza VI for viola, number XI for guitar, which distils and transcends the traditions of classical and folk guitar into 15 minutes, and number XII for bassoon, which bassoonist Pascal Gallois plays in an apparently never-ending nerio of circular breathing, creating a continuous sound from the his instrument for an almost unbelievable 18 minutes — just one of the examples where Berio pushes an instrument and a performer, to their limits, and beyond.

The vocalists simultaneously provide a commentary on what is happening in the performance “where now? A violin melody is continuously repeated with small variations, like a litany. As Berio puts it, Laborintus II is “a laboratory ‘reduced’ to the dimensions of performance, where we test theories and practices which can be used as experimental models ebrio real life.

Here more than anywhere, one perceives the non-traditional disposition of the instruments: Try Laborintus II for voices, instruments and tape, a piece in which not just a musical past but a whole labyrinth of meanings, memories, and histories are conjured by the voices, in the interplay between Edoardo Sanguineti’s richly resonant text and Berio’s vertiginously surreal collage of references and allusions, to musical pasts of madrigals and polyphony.
