  • for clarinet
  • Duration: 4’
  • Composer: Luciano Berio
  • Table of contents:
    Lied per clarinetto solo
  • Dedication: per Edoardo Debenedetti

Work introduction

Lied seems just like its title, as if the music could be sung. Unlike the Sequenze, Berio is not concerned here with virtuosity; his aim is to convey the atmosphere of more mournful, introspective, cantabile music – its rapidly repeated pitches seem to make it hesitate, stammer.


World première

Genève (CH)

Steven Kanoff
