Requies (author's note)

for orchestra (1983-1985)

An orchestra plays a melody. Or rather, it describes a melody: but only as a shadow can describe an object, or an echo a sound. Unremitting yet discontinuous, the melody unfolds through flash-backs and digressions around a mobile and distant centre, perhaps indecipherable for the listener.
Requies is dedicated to the memory of Cathy Berberian.

Luciano Berio
