Luciano Berio: Complete Chronological Catalogue

"Luciano Berio was regarded by many connoisseurs of contemporary music as the most naturally musical and least doctrinaire of the post-1945 avant-garde composers.

For all that he was a pioneer in the development of electronic music and of new methods of combining speech with music, he belonged spiritually to the mainstream of Italian music in his relish of sensuousness and lyricism." - The Telegraph


This playlist is compiled after the list of compositions on Wikipedia, from 4 Popular Songs (1946) to the "posthumous" Sequenza XIVb, arranged for double bass (2004). Unlisted transcriptions and arrangements (Brahms, Falla, Mahler, Weill) are attached at the end, including a completion to Puccini's Turandot. The fourteen Sequenzas are taken from over a dozen different recordings.
