Work introduction

It could be said that the Petite Suite is neoclassical music. Written when Berio was 22, each of its short movements is reminiscent of a past composer, always irrupted; the Prelude might be from the Well-Tempered Clavier, as estranged by Hindemith, the Gigue sounds like Prokofiev’s approach to that 18th-century dance, the Petite air I could derive from Bartók’s Mikrokosmos, while the Petite air II perhaps suggests Ravel.
