New record releases


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.

The record label BIS published the SACD featuring the recording of Luciano Berio's Coro for forty voices and instruments – composed between 1974 and 1976 on popular songs and texts by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda – and Cries of London for eight voices (1976), based on a free choice of phrases from the street vendors of ancient London. Under the baton of Grete Pedersen, the Norwegian Solists's Choir and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra deal here with one of the greatest choral works of the past 50 years.
