Luciano Berio: Sequenza II
Performance Interpretation Course on one of the great harp works of the 20th Century

Undoubtedly one of the most important works written for harp in the 20th century, Berio’s Sequenza II is notoriously difficult to play. Alice Giles was considered by Berio as the foremost interpreter of this piece, and she performed it for him many times.

The videos in the course provide important background information, detailed performance instructions as an in-depth lesson, slow motion clips, and demonstrations on the special techniques involved. As such the course is also relevant for composers. There is over 2 hours of video material, organised into small sections using bar numbers, so that you can anywhere, as you work through the piece.

As always in the courses, there is a comments section under each video, where you can ask questions or make observations about anything you encounter.

It is expected the student will own their own copy of the score, published by Universal.

The course is currently set up for one person per enrollment use only.

To include a face-to-face individual lesson to complement this course, you can enroll in the Skype 1:1 Lesson Course.
