Luciano Berio, Circles, Bussotti, Frammento, John Cage, Aria with Fontana Mix

£30.00

Product description

Luciano Berio, (1925 – 2003) was an Italian composer. He is noted for his experimental work in particular his 1968 composition Sinfonia and his series of virtuosic solo pieces titled Sequenza)[contradiction] and also for his pioneering work in electronic music. Written in 1960 Circles is a setting of three poems by E. E. Cummings, including the poems 'Stinging,' 'Riverly is a Flower,' and 'N(o)w.' It is a composition for female voice, harp and two percussionists.

Sylvano Bussotti (born 1 October 1931) is an Italian composer of contemporary music whose work is unusually notated and often creates special problems of interpretation. Bussotti learned to play the violin as a child, becoming a prodigy. Later he studied at the Florence Conservatory (where he developed an opposition to modernism), with Luigi Dallapiccola and with Max Deutsch in Paris. As a composer he was influenced by the twelve-tone music of Webern and later John Cage.

John Cage (1912 – 1992) was an American composer, music theorist, writer, and artist. A pioneer of indeterminacy in music, electroacoustic music, and non-standard use of musical instruments, Cage was one of the leading figures of the post-war avant-garde. Critics have lauded him as one of the most influential American composers of the 20th century. His teachers included Henry Cowell (1933) and Arnold Schoenberg (1933–35), both known for their radical innovations in music.
In 1958 John Cage composed "Aria". This piece is dedicated to Cathy Berberian, one of the most talented voices in 20th century. However this composition has become an obligatory stage for a singer who is interested in contemporary music. The first thing that one can notice is the particular but at the same time simple musical notation traceable in the score: a sequence of curved lines each one roughly describing the pitch path requested for the emission of sound.

The sleeve is in very good condition though there are signs of age. Slight marks in some places.
The disc is in excellent condition and appears to have been hardly played.
