Except for Sequenza IX for Clarinet () all of Berio's sequenzas are written for a specific virtuoso: flute, Severino Gazzeloni; harp, Francis Pierre; voice, Cathy. PDF | n this paper, Luciano Berio's Sequenza V for solo trombone is elements throughout the Sequenza series (Berio , 93, 97; Halfyard a: ix).
The whole series of compositions was entitled A Garland for Dr. So to accommodate the setup, each percussionist must have several stations of music to facilitate reading. This page was last edited on 31 Marchat The third movement followed early the next year, and all three movements were played together for the first time in April under Riccardo Chailly, also in Amsterdam.
Written in Circles is a setting of three poems by E. Member feedback about Sequenza I: In the first phrase, for example, the C-sharp does not occur in the voice until the end bar 6. Circles programme note The work received its premiere beeio the Felsenreitschule, Salzburg, on 24 Julydirected by Claus Guth. Member feedback about Max Richter: Of more immediate interest, however, are the extrapolations from the speech sounds in the text to the timbre and figuration in the instrumental parts.
It includes only composers of significant fame and importance. In the phasing pieces, this simply represented a rhythmic unison that would elide into and past a canon where in New York Counterpoint or its sister compositions, a canonic texture is created using several lines to create a conglomerate that is at once a canon, an ostinato, and a vamp that goes on until the next pattern starts.
Both compositions are difficult to analyze effectively, one seemingly because too little is actually going on and the other because there is too much but each is a candidate for rough- contour pattern-recognition or associative formal analysis.
In New York Counterpoint this concept takes shape in a rough contour that characterizes each movement. Various inversions of this line displace the rhythmic stress of the held note to create composite rhythms when combined. The third movement returns to a syncopated version of the theme from the first movement and is featured in the Solo Clarinet live part on the first line. The original segment is lengthened and delays the appearance of the high note of longer duration and uses E-flat, B, D-flat, A-flat, F, and G as it descends, ascends, and redescends.
Page 16 of 30 confined to a rhythmic level given the shifting beat. Sequenza IXa features transformational processes on multiple levels for a more complicated analysis. Schaub puts forth a more detailed analysis in which the four influential pitch class sets of the piece are set forth.
According to her, the first pitch class set is defined by the ascending grace note found in the beginning and the end of line 2 2, 3, 4, 8, 0, 1, 4, 5 and that the second and most influential pitch class set is found in the ascending grace notes in line 6, 0, 1, 4, 7, 10, 11 with two recurring subsets 0,7, 1, 11 and 6, 4, The first two pitch class sets typically retain their rhythmic qualities while the third pitch class set 0, 6, 4, 0, 7, 1, 11, 5, 10, 7, 8 is found on the fourth line of the first page and the fourth pitch class set 0, 7, 1, 11, 9, 6, 4, 10 is presented in subsets in the first three lines of the second page in four-note groups.
The second two pitch class sets are subject to rhythmic transformation. Schaub determines the importance of 32 Schaub, Schaub also delineates the importance of gestural elements in the dotted 32nd note figure and the long notes and fermatas. For example, the long duration following the dotted 32nd note figure is not consistent in value but can still be categorized as a contour.
Schullman affirms these patterns and conveniently illustrates them in Figure 2. Page 20 of 30 a partially ordered five-pitch succession that recurs on the first line i. Page 21 of 30 The figure included below demonstrates rough-contour pattern-recognition respectively. Using fluid-pattern recognition as a platform, Schullman identifies two motivic figures that retain an integral presence throughout the work, the first labeled as P1 and beginning in the second half of the first line with the dotted 32nd note figure, and the second labeled P2 and representing the ascending grace note found in lines 2 and 3.
This suggests a stretching process is operative. Then, while the heads of the pattern descend, the final pitches of the P1 instantiations—like P2—ascend. Page 23 of 30 used. Further research could uncover a pattern or process in dynamic contouring. Perhaps the most striking parallel however, is the lack of modulations or progressions from traditional harmonic building blocks but from harmonic field to harmonic field much as Berio defined relationships and achieved temporality in his Sequenzas.
In reality, the second compositional relationship is more impersonal and controlled as Berio benefits from greater freedom with his transformations in multiple domains and rhapsodic use of pitch. Human beings use music as a path, which we control.
Page 24 of 30 there is a turning point during his creative process when he surrenders to his own music, with the rhythm and motifs unfolding themselves. This effect is strengthened in Vermont Counterpoint whereas New York Counterpoint retains some concept of beginning, middle, and end due to maximum, medium, and minimum levels of tension achieved through layering and dynamic contours. The reworking of the motivic pattern from the first movement into the third movement contributes to the sense of linearity, supposing a return to a motivic building block that has been modified by the journey taken by the piece despite the ambiguity of ending on an open fifth that evaporates into the air as if it were all for nought.
It achieves nonlinearity stasis through linearity sequential motivic process. Vermont Counterpoint unfolds in time, and makes time unfold.
Vermont Counterpoint creates a time of its own, a multiple time win which eleven moments of one flute player become one single moment. It is temporal multiplicity, it is flute multiplicity, it is human multiplicity enabled by technology. Using transformational processes in every domain, Berio achieves a non metric linearity built on relations and transformations of every available domain that is every bit capable of transporting the listener on a sea of sounds that, like the waves, are constantly reinventing themselves in a linearity that is better felt than seen if the listener is brave enough to affront the undertow and sink below the surface.
Page 26 of 30 In conclusion, both pieces seek out counterpoint or polyphony in unlikely sources and employ transformational processes to achieve these ends through constant dialogue in the form of a monologue where firm ground is but shifting sand. This process is made more effective in its exploitation of gestures or motivic contours in endless variation or juxtaposition with itself and guided by the principles of pitch hierarchy or recognizing the empirical nature of duration, register, and recurrence in assigning importance to specific notes or patterns.
These guiding principles provide intelligibility for a harmonic understanding of both pieces as dialogue of harmonic fields united by transformational processes and strung out in a temporal realm where gravity as we know it is suspended.

Accessed online September 24, It incorporated elements of Sri Lankan music, like drumming on the top of the cello. It was such a fantastic piece and so approachable, that I wanted to do it. What led to the Toronto Sequenza? Petric: I was invited to play the accordion sequenza in at Tanglewood.
That performance triggered my motivation to mount a Sequenza in Canada. It was always at the back of my mind. After all, Toronto is a hub of new music. Hetherington: When Joseph suggested it, I thought it was a great idea. Petric: Between David and me, we had two of the sequenze. We just had to find 12 other musicians.
There are really 15 solos on your program, one more than the original 14 sequenze. Hetherington: In fact, many of the sequenze have been arranged and adapted for other instruments. Berio was keen to get his music out there. The cello sequenza has a XIVb for double bass. I understand that there is some staging involved. Petric: Our original idea was to have Graham Cozzubbo do the stage direction. We want to draw the audience in — to give them a sense of a theatrical event.
To make it more than just a concert.
You mention narration. Berio frequently fused the spoken word and music together in his compositions. Berio had a great empathy for the literary component, and was always looking for texts he could incorporate with his music.
Eco, you might remember, wrote the novel The Name of the Rose. Both men were also involved with Gruppo 64 and Studio di Fonologio, both hubs of electronic music in Milan. Tell me about the Sequenza poetry. Petric: Edoardo Sanquineti was an Italian poet and a very good friend of Berio. In , he wrote verses to go with the sequenze.
In terms of presentation, they precede each solo. The poetry helps create a sense of an event. The words provide layers and moods to the music. Hetherington: The inclusion of the poetry just shows you how open Berio was to broadening the horizons of New Music.
What about the verses for your own instruments? Petric: Our instruments are the last two sequenze. Berio subtitled it Chanson. What celebrations! And what laments to follow! And what dances! And what sweet sorrows! And what accidents! And rush, and rendings, and burstings!
