At the start of this CD is the half-hour work for orchestra, soprano, piano and tape that Nono completed in 1972 and was released in 1974, Como Una Ola De Fuerza Y Luz (Like a wave of strength and light). In seven sections, it pays tribute to a Chilean revolutionary, Lusiano Cruz (died 1971 in unexplained circumstances). The increasing sophistication with which Nono could blend live instrumentation with tape production is very much in evidence here, and is endlessly listenable and thought-provoking. The latest work is .....Sofferte Onde Serene..... (1976), putting a further spotlight on the great Maurizio Pollini as he expertly picks his way through Nono's piano-cluster variations, meant to evoke melancholy memories of the composer's home life and deceased family members in Venice.
