Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

Paul Hillier leads Theatre of Voices in a fascinating program centered on the artistic milieu of the contemporary composer Luciano Berio. Hillier says, "Although not all these composers actually knew each other, I think of them as a group of mutual friends with shared interests and predilections. If there is a link between them it is perhaps the influence of John Cage, though it could almost equally have been the personality of Cathy Berberian."
