Bruno Maderna

Maderna, Bruno (brōˈnō mädĕrˈnä) [key], 1920–73, Italian composer and conductor, b. Venice. Maderna studied composing with Gian Francesco Malipiero and conducting with Hermann Scherchen. As a conductor he introduced many avant-garde works to Italy. Maderna's music at times employed serialism and aleatoricism, while always sharing a warmth and expressiveness. He collaborated with Luciano Berio in electronic music at the Milan Radio. Among his works are three instrumental serenades (1946, 1954, 1969), three oboe concertos (1962, 1967, 1973), and the Juilliard Serenade for chamber orchestra and tape (1971).
