Venetian Games

The work constitutes an aleatory breakthrough in Lutosławski’s oeuvre and a milestone in his international career. The title Venetian Games came from the place of its world premiere in 1961, at the Venice Biennale, as well as an original approach to the shaping of musical performance, which includes an element of chance (see: Aleatory technique).
