Luciano Berio: Sequenza VIIb

VIIb is recorded by Ulrich Krieger. He had all the lights in the hall turned off, and only a small stand light on.

The B natural should give the impression of lending a slight resonance to the oboe. There are two parts to working on this aspect. For these passages, keep your syllables as light as possible, “Doo-Goo”, so that you are imperceptibly altering the airstream. I imagine Kelland’s recording of IXb is worth having as well.

I feel that I have come a long way since then. And the double-tongue, I could only do it on some on the stuff and everything else had to be bogged down by my slow, lethargic single-tongue.

On the s I tried, I didn’t berii I had the power to project comfortably over an orchestra like in some of the fuller moments of the Torke Concerto but had good agility in general and decent altissimo control.

If only Selmer had made a Larry Teal for soprano This is true for a lot of our hard contemporary and even non-contemporary works. Incidentally, an extreme oboist friend of mine saw Alex Klein principal oboe, Chicago Symph peform this from memory with the lights zequenza in the hall.

I’ve tried a couple of Morgan 3Cs as well as other facings and can’t make them work to the degree of sensitivity that I can get with ssequenza Caravan with which I’ve painted myself into an agility corner a couple of times now. If anyone has any more specific questions, please ask.

And I indeed was -that- guy I referenced. I’m trying to get it memorized for DMA auditions this year. Welcome to the forum! Herein lies the challenge. Angel, I heard Kelland Thomas perform it several years ago in Chicago, it was truly outstanding. Then slowly begin to insert the “goo”-syllable notes, taking note of how the production may pull your tongue away from the proper position for single-tonguing. I didn’t get very far though because I was diagnosed with jaw tendonitis and I had to quit.
