Program to feature “Folk Songs” (1964) by Luciano Berio. The composer writes of this work, “It is an anthology of eleven folk songs of various origins (United States, Armenia, France, Sicily, Sardinia, etc.), chosen from old records, printed anthologies, or heard sung from folk musicians and friends. I have given the songs a new rhythmic and harmonic interpretation: in a way, I have recomposed them. The instrumental part has an important function: it is meant to underline and comment on the expressive and cultural roots of each song. Such roots signify not only the ethnic origins of the songs but also the history of the authentic uses that have been made of them.” Black is the colour (USA) I wonder as I wander (USA) Loosin yelav (Armenia) Rossignolet du bois (France) A la femminisca (Sicily) La donna ideale (Italy) Ballo (Italy) Motettu de Tristura (Sardinia) Malorous qu’o un fenno (Auvergne [France]) Lo fiolaire (Auvergne [France]) Azerbaijan love song (Aserbaijan) General
