On the centenary of his birth, Centro Studi Luciano Berio wants to pay homage to Bruno Maderna through a small collection of archival documents, partly unpublished, which convey the intensity of a unique human and artistic friendship. Juxtaposed like pieces of a colorful mosaic, images, words and music indicate unequivocally – and at times moving – the strength of a friendship made of giving and receiving, and of affection, enthusiasm, desire for knowledge and also of disenchanted pragmatism. But, above all, of a common way of feeling and experiencing music in an all-encompassing way, as «an enchanted landscape, a document of all of us men of the past, of the present, of the future».

The elegant box featuring the nine Chemins by Luciano Berio was released by Sebastian Solte's label Bastille Musique. Composed between 1965 and 1996 as a sort of "citation, translation, expansion and transcription of the Sequenzas for solo instrument" – to paraphrase the words of the composer – these Chemins are also the best analyzes of the Sequenzas.
The double CD, accompanied by the program notes and a beautiful iconographic set, includes the live recording of the six concerts featuring the WDR Symphony Orchestra which were held between 2016 and 2017 in Cologne, in the frame of the cycle "Musik der Zeit": seven conductors and seven soloists participated in this ambitious project, which includes the world premiere recording of Chemins IIc.
