Berio is always some serious shit. Berio and voices...seems to always be an extra-exceptional occurrence.

Strongly agree on Berio and voices! Re. the non-vocal music, my experience has been highly mixed. Maybe I haven't heard the right pieces.

Disc 1 of the Xenakis - Persephassa, Psappha, Dmaathen. I was a bit ginger about a set of percussion music but this was remarkably entertaining. Some absolutely beautiful textures at work. I suspect the percussion piece on Pink Floyd's 'Umma Gumma' and the various King Crimson percussion passages had Xenaxis as an inspiration.

 Pli Selon Pli off second which still largely escapes me.
