Tim Johnson's latest post in his Music Since 1960 series is on Luciano Berio's Sinfonia. Mr. Johnson gets at much of what is important and moving about this great work.

I've always thought that the Sinfonia, the Carter Concerto for Orchestra, and Xenakis' Kraanerg together make an excellent musical portrait of the turmoil of the late 1960s.
