With texts by the composer Berio, Claude Lévi-Strauss, and Samuel Beckett this is truly a modern classic; Berio creates a fabric of sound wide and deep with a full orchestra. This is a must for the modern classical library.
The Sinfonia is the kind of music that will make your jaw drop. It totally blows me away. Plus, this is a well-executed performance.
This recording by Eötvös is fantastic; I would recommend you buy this disc instead of the Boulez version - something seems to be missing in the latter's engineering, almost like the vocalists had speakers set up in various places in the hall, and not done throught the mixing board. This recording has much more color and imagination. Highly recommended.
