"At a relatively early stage in his career, he succeeded in transcending the closed world of the European avant garde to address a wider public. The vivid, gestural idiom that he developed in the 1960s, and the creative consequences that he drew from other, often extra-musical aspects of the culture around him, established for him a world-wide reputation that sustained his subsequent exploration of a wide, and sometimes challenging, arc of musical resources. Of formidable creative energy, he proved one of the most prolific composers of the later 20th century. Berio's long-established status as the leading Italian composer of his generation remains secure." David Osmond-Smith and Ben Earle in Grove Music Online.. 1 page. Ca. 148 x 203 mm.
