Abstract

Scottish Premiere of Luciano Berio's Sequenza for Guitar performed by Peter Argondizza. "Berio's Sequenza XI for Guitar is considered the most difficult and virtuosic avant-garde work for the instrument. Berio combines several pitch classes to pit the idiomatic harmony of the guitar-perfect fourths-in conflict with the tension of the tritone in a structure that resembles Bach’s Ciaconna from the second violin partita in d minor. The performance presents a variety of guitar techniques including rasqueado (from flamenco), tremolo, glissando, harmonics and tambour (percussive effects). The dramatic work reaches a calm resolution through the final reiteration of the tritone."
