Schoenberg’s song cycle Pierrot lunaire, for voice and small instrumental ensemble, has had a profound influence on the history of music. Presented here in three parts interspersed with works by Enescu and Stravinsky, this expressionist masterpiece sets twenty-one poems by the Belgian poet Albert Giraud, translated into German by Otto Erich Hartleben. An opportunity to discover – or rediscover – this extraordinary musical landmark.
