Major figures of modernity

Unfolding throughout the season, a dialogue between the composers who shaped the twentieth century and their successors.

LUCIANO BERIO

A master of adaptation, Luciano Berio boldly transformed works from almost every musical genre. The highlight of this weekend in his honour will be Orfeo III, in which he revisits the founding myth of music.
