Sign up for our newsletter! Coro makes a kind of meta-world music by turning a poem by Pablo Neruda into a gigantic, dissonant lament, but it also uses folk texts from all over the world, from Polynesia to Peru, to create what Berio himself described as “the plan for an imaginary city which stanzee realised on different levels, which produces, assembles and unifies different things and persons, revealing their collective and individual characters, their distance, their relationships and conflicts within real and ideal borders”.

It is a flat surface of changing density, that every so often lets the light shine through, a polyphony of timbres tsanze almost imperceptible movement is disturbed only by the sparkling clusters of the celesta.

Yet in the poem by Alfred Brendel one can discern, beyond berko biting and irreverent irony, a libertarian invitation to seek the presence of God even in lightheartedness. Berio’s last work, Stanzeis a luminous song-cycle on themes of God and death, for baritone, male voices, and orchestra, music as moving as any he wrote. The chorus takes apart some syllables of the text and repeats them mechanically, onomatopoeically. Die Schlacht Dan Pagis 6: In memoriam [sound recording] Stanze. A violin melody is continuously repeated with small variations, like a litany.


A mythological God who needs to create man in order to give a meaning to his own freedom of action.

Even though Berio ‘s meditations on God and death are rather free of rage or resignation — neither posture is particularly suited to the composer’s dry wit and sense of irony — he is nonetheless probing and questioning of life’s meanings, and supplies the texts with fairly unsettling, provocative music. Das Blut und das Bild, das im Blut war, Herr. A fortissimo explodes into violent shuddering in the orchestra, and a chilling howl of indeterminate pitch from the chorus. In their reciprocal confrontations, the substances that inhabit them do not engage in a mutual definition, but instead become ever more elusive, more unmentionable, amplifying the eternal question of the meaning of things.

In all of these cases, Celan is presented as a poet of the Shoah and of Jewish culture, and it is in the same light that he appears in the first part of Stanze.

The third movement of Sinfonia writes out how Berio listens to the equivalent movement from Mahler’s symphony, and the piece reveals how every time we listen to music, we’re plugging into an always-changing network of memory, allusion, and cross-reference.

Listening to the score live and analysing it more deeply may help to clarify the stanzs functions of this orchestral disposition, upon which the staanze worked for a long time.

That is what happens between the first Paul Celan and the last Dan Pagis poem; whereas in the second Giorgio Caproni and the fourth Alfred Brendelit is instead the onomatopoeic and citational functions that prevail — thus giving them a more extrovert and immediate character.
