A superlative interpretation

Io, Frammento da Prometeo de Luigi Nono

Io, frammento da Prometeo, is seventy-five minutes long, with a smooth, incredibly refined music. Although using a very modest sound material (chamber choir, three sopranos soloists, bass flute, bass clarinet, magnified by a non-standard electronic device), the Venetian composer immediately reaches a disconcerting faculty of expression. And the choir Les Métaboles and soloists from the Multilateral ensemble led by Léo Warynski give it a superlative interpretation in the vessel of the Saint-Paul church.
