Work introduction

Even during his lifetime Luciano Berio was regarded as a modern master – his music played a crucial role in shaping the second half of the 20th century. Two works especially immediately spring to mind as ‘synonymous’ with him: the Sequenzas and Sinfonia. Berio’s pieces for solo instruments, the Sequenzas, are ‘written for performers whose virtuosity is above all a virtuosity of knowledge’. The Sequenzas attempt to expand the horizon of instrumental possibilities from the standpoint of the instrument itself. Berio dedicated his last completed Sequenza, Sequenza XIV, to the cellist Rohan de Saram, who had introduced Berio to the traditional instruments of his native Sri Lanka. Influences of a percussive nature in particular are incorporated in this Sequenza.
