“10 systems of pianochords, varying in dynamics, selected by chance. Each system is roughly 1 minute long, all but one flexible. Each system contains 2 sets of chords. The order of each set is maintained, but the relationship between the two sets of chords is free.”
Folk Songs is a song cycle by the Italian composer Luciano Berio composed in 1964. It consists of arrangements of folk music from various countries and other songs, forming “a tribute to the extraordinary artistry” of the American singer Cathy Berberian, a specialist in Berio’s music. It is scored for voice, flute (doubling on piccolo), clarinet, harp, viola, cello, and percussion (two players). The composer arranged it for a large orchestra in 1973.
