AllMusic Review by

Astonishing performances by one of new music's first vocal sound experimenters, Berberian (1925 - 1983) had many pieces written especially for her. Includes Luciano Berio "Circles" (text by e.e. cummings), Bussotti "Frammento", and an especially noteworthy presentation of the John Cage "Aria with Fontana Mix". You may also wish to hear her "Stripsody for solo voice" (1966) on Wergo WER 60054-50.
