Theatre of the world



Get to know Luciano Berio; one of the towering musical personalities of the post-war avantgarde, who constantly reinvented musical sound and form. His music drew inspiration from and reworked the vernacular of folk, pop and other classical music and indeed his own compositions. The London Sinfonietta collaborated a great deal with Berio during the 1970s and 1980s, helping both ensemble and composer to establish an international reputation.
