We are very sad to bid farewell to Fabio Vanni, who departed this life on the 12th of April in Rome at the age of 56.

An honorary member of the Centro Studi Luciano Berio and a valued member of its directing Board, Fabio participated in the life of the Association with extraordinary dedication, passion and professionalism right from the start. For all of us, this is an irremediable personal and professional loss. His rigour, humanity and remarkable strength in coping with life's most onerous obstacles will remain with us and inspire us.

Our most heartfelt condolences go to the family and to the Vanni Tani Ianiro studio.

Farewell, dear Fabio.



Following years of preparation and increasing expectation, the first collection of Luciano Berio's writings: Scritti sulla musica has finally issued by Einaudi, Torino, edited by Angela Ida De Benedictis and with an Introduction by Giorgio Pestelli. The volume features nearly 90 texts, some but not all of them previously published, covering the period 1952 - 2003, accompanied by editorial notes and comments (see the index attached in pdf). The anthology, organized in four broad sections, includes lectures, essays and articles varying in scope and subject matter, program notes, encyclopaedia entries, recollections and tributes to friends and fellow artists, as well as profiles of musicians, painters and writers who made their mark on Berio's creative career. The topics range from his own music to the compositions of others, his experience in the Studio elettronico and in music theatre, from rock to folk music, and so on. Altogether these texts accompany the reader through the vast range of Berio's interests and the human and artistic involvement that characterised the reflections of one of the most outstanding composers of our time.
