Sinfonia by Luciano Berio (1925-2003). For 8 Voices, Orchestra. Diverse Sprachen und Vokalisen. Duration 35 minutes. Published by Universal Edition (PR.UE035319).
Published in a new oblong study score, Berio's 1968 tribute to Leonard Bernstein and the 125th Anniversary of the New York Philharmonic is a masterwork of contemporary composition. Most famously, the third movement exemplifies the concept of "meta music," in which a quote from Mahler is used to surround and encompass further quotes from several other composers.
