Luciano Berio: Folk Songs 1, with Nora Fischer
Based on traditional texts and songs of folklore.
Dedicated to Armenian American singer Cathy Berberian, Luciano Berio’s wife, these Folk Songs were originally performed by the dedicatee and the Julliard Ensemble, conducted by the composer himself in 1964. Here, Nora Fischer tackles the glorious work with the Stargaze Collective. The first part of this work includes four pieces and, in addition to a mezzo-soprano soloist, Berio's score consists of two percussions, guitar, viola, cello, flute and clarinet.
