A. Schönberg Pierrot Lunaire, Op. 21

Premiered in 1912 in Berlin, “Pierrot lunaire”, offered today by Ensemble XXI of the Penedès Chamber Orchestra and the mezzosoprano Marta Valero, is a song cycle based on poems by Albert Giraud which Schönberg set to atonal music. Although it is not dodecaphonic, it does show the influence of numerology, for example based on the number 7, the number of members of the instrumental group. Inspired by the Viennese cabaret atmosphere, a particular feature of the work is the use of sprechstimme or spoken discourse combined with old forms and varied instrumentation and dealing with themes such as love, religion and violence.
