Remembering a Giant

Today would have been the 86th birthday of Luciano Berio, who died in May 2003 (pictured here on the Orchestra’s 1968 tour). This curious and omnivorous composer had a very strong connection with the New York Philharmonic during the 1960s and 1970s, and was the subject of an online tribute in 2008 when the Orchestra performed several of his works, including the landmark Sinfonia, which the Philharmonic had commissioned and premiered 40 years earlier.
