Work introduction

Berio composed the first of his Sequenze in 1958, for flute; it was published by Edizioni Suvini Zerboni. Having set himself the task of writing multi-voiced music for the solo instrument, the composer formulated his plan thus in the introduction to the piece: “Writing for a single-voice instrument today means that the composer must thoroughly re-establish the relationship between open and concealed, linear and melodic counterpoint from the ground up; this touches a central nerve-point of musical invention.”
