Sinfonia is a 1968 Columbia Records recording of Luciano Berio conducting the New York Philharmonic and The Swingle Singers in the premier of his 4 movement "Sinfonia." The composer would later add a fifth movement.

In 1992, the London-based "New Swingle Singers" recorded the same work (with an added 5th movement) with the Orchestre National de France conducted by Pierre Boulez (Erato).
