Luciano Berio - Sinfonia - 3rd Mvt - Rattle/CBSO
This movement is a parody of the Scherzo of Mahler's 'Resurrection' Symphony, in the composer's words, creating "the image of that of a river running through a constantly changing landscape, disappearing from time to time underground, only to emerge later totally transformed." Under a collage of spoken and sung text fragments by Samuel Beckett, Berio incorporates 20th century musical quotations from Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, Debussy's La Mer, Ravel, Schoenberg, Berg and even himself. in youtube.com/user/gab1279
