#86 The Smell of Butchery

I smell flesh here. Animal rhythms and sequences but the animals are dead. Not a lovely view but an interesting one. Shocking at first sight but one becomes dull soon.

Stanze is Berio's last composition. This movement–or room–is based on a poem by Alfred Brendel saying that the voice of God can be found in Tritsch-Tratsch Polka by Johann Strauss, Jr.

Composer: Luciano Berio
Work: Stanze, IV. Alfred Brendel
Recording: Dietrich Henschel, Orchestre de Paris, Christoph Eschenbach
