Luciano Berio: Wanderer between Tradition and the Avant-Garde

In his works, music, text and action mix into a labyrinthine jumble. But where some of hiscontemporaries avoided any contact with the musically familiar, for him there is no historical end-point. Quite the contrary, Berio consciously incorporates the historically familiar, music and literature, even folk-music traditions: in his electronic as well as in his instrumental and vocal music. It is a question of reading and re-reading this already familiar, exploring it for its expressive possibilities, transforming it and incorporating it into the process of composition, in which everything historical is newly minted as in today’s music.


Naturale: A Virtuoso Dance Solo

Berio composed Naturale for viola, percussion and tape. The dance solo fits into the whole like a fourth voice that takes up the Sicilian folk theme of Naturale and translates it brilliantly into a contemporary context.


Visage: Eventful Face Dance

From five different sequences of the most diverse gestures and changes in the faces of five different people, which were filmed, portrait-like, to Berio’s sound track, a maximum of three pictures are projected simultaneously live on three screens during the performance.


Sequenza V for Trombone Solo

Sequenza V was written in 1965 for the trombonist Stuart Dempster. In Sequenza V it is not just about the emotional content of the music that the trombonist is playing on his instrument, it is also about the emotions of the trombonist himself: his own physical presence, which in a certain way demands an unconventional approach.
