3 min
Luciano Berio: Michelle II - With Nora Fischer

A famous Beatles masterpiece reworked by Luciano Berio.

Inspired by the work written in 1965 by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Michelle II distinguishes itself with the II after her name. Luciano Berio met Paul McCartney in 1966 and, after being struck by the Beatles fever, the following year he composed several arrangements of Beatles songs. Berio’s version of Michelle II is performed by a mezzo-soprano voice along with seven instruments: flute, clarinet, guitar, violin, viola, cello and double bass.

A celebration of the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
