DAS NEUE ENSEMBLE: NATURALE
The employment of the instruments was intended to “comment without manipulating the meaning of the songs on what I consider to be the origi-
nal expression of each song according to its cultural background” (Berio). More than twenty years later, Berio returned to the folk song in much reduced form. In “Naturale” for viola, percussion and pre-recorded tape, he utilises recordings of the raw natural voice of a street singer from Palermo, juxtaposing these songs with an extremely fine transcription only using the viola and percussion instruments. The area of the special gardens corresponds as a field of tension within artistically designed nature and the concept behind this music.
