Here is a program note on the piece.
Sequenza IV | Centro Studi Luciano Berio – Luciano Berio’s Official Website
Sequenza IV can be viewed as a voyage of exploration through diversely characterized instrumental articulations, and as a dialogue between chordal development and linear development of the same material.
Two independent harmonic sequences are developed simultaneously and at times interpenetrate: Sequenza IV was written in for Jocy de Sequeza.
This pedal does not permit all the strings of the instrument to vibrate freely as does the right pedal, but only those strings whose keys are being depressed at the moment the pedal is applied. This selective sustain permits the intermingling of resounding and detached sounds characteristic of the work.
The chattering textures and rapid juxtapositions of contrasting character bring to mind the mercurially shifting gestures of which srquenza Cathy Berberian was capable, and which Berio exploited in Sequenza III for solo voice, written for Berberian.
Amidst the clusters and dense chords, there is something lyrical — or at least vocal — at play in Sequenza IV. The program notes for the DG recording mentioned above offer prefatory verses by Edoardo Sanguineti for each piece.
I draw myself against all your many mirrors, I transform myself with my veins, with my feet: I shut myself up inside all your eyes. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
