Alternative Fingering for Berio's Sequenza IXa
by Antony Pay
This is not presented as a wholly satisfactory solution to the problem of playing the Sequenza on a standard Boehm clarinet; but it was arrived at in collaboration with Berio, and at the time he accepted it. I should be clear that he, not I, changed some 'standard' notes to accommodate the fact that the multiphonics had necessarily changed pitch, though he subsequently denied this. Probably he just forgot.
