Berio - Theatre of the World



Berio - Theatre of the World

Luciano Berio was one of the towering musical personalities of the post-war avantgarde, constantly reinventing musical sound and form. His music drew inspiration from and reworked the vernacular of folk, pop and other classical music and indeed his own compositions.
The London Sinfonietta collaborated a great deal with Berio during the 1970s and 1980s, helping both ensemble and composer to establish an international reputation.
