Wherever the performer fails to find it, he must resist adding something that the composer did not intend. If he did so, he would not be adding, but subtracting.
In the score, sprechstimme is indicated with small x's through the stems of notes. Though sprechstimme is used throughout the piece, Schoenberg also occasionally indicates that certain passages are to be sung gesungen.
Arnold Schoenberg himself made test recordings of the music with a group of Los Angeles musicians from September 24 to 26, These recordings were eventually released on LP by Columbia Records in , and reissued in on the Odyssey label.

According to the singer in a interview, "Kent Nagano wanted to make a recording of it, but I really felt that I would be invading the territory of people who sing this for a lifetime [ sic ].
The American mezzo-soprano Mary Nessinger has performed Pierrot lunaire extensively with organizations such as the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center , Chamber Music Northwest, and Sequitur at venues including Alice Tully Hall and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.
In March , Bruce LaBruce directed a performance at the Hebbel am Ufer Theatre in Berlin. This interpretation of the work included gender diversity, castration scenes and dildos, as well as a female to male transgender Pierrot.
LaBruce subsequently filmed this adaptation as the theatrical film Pierrot lunaire. The quintet of instruments used in Pierrot lunaire became the core ensemble for The Fires of London , who formed in as "The Pierrot Players" to perform Pierrot lunaire , and continued to concertize with a varied classical and contemporary repertory.
This group performed works arranged for these instruments and commissioned new works especially to take advantage of this ensemble's instrumental colors, up until it disbanded in Over the years, other groups have continued to use this instrumentation professionally current groups include Da Capo Chamber Players ,  eighth blackbird  and the Finnish contemporary group Uusinta Lunaire ,  and have built a large repertoire for the ensemble.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Pierrot Lunaire. In the first group, Pierrot sings of love, sex and religion; in the second, of violence, crime, and blasphemy; and in the third of his return home to Bergamo, with his past haunting him.
Schoenberg, who was fascinated by numerology, also makes great use of seven-note motifs throughout the work, while the ensemble with conductor comprises seven people.
The piece is his opus 21, contains 21 poems, and was begun on March 12, Other key numbers in the work are three and each poem consists of 13 lines two four-line verses followed by a five-line verse , while the first line of each poem occurs three times being repeated as lines seven and Pierrot Lunaire uses a variety of classical forms and techniques, including canon, fugue, rondo, passacaglia and free counterpoint.
The poetry is a German version of a rondeau of the old French type with a double refrain. The use of Sprechstimme gives such prominence and clarity to the text of Pierrot that we may well consider the work a setting of poetry.
Expressionism Finstre, schwarze Riesenfalter Tötoen der Sonne Glanz. In addition to the use of Sprechstimme, which gives the words an eerie, incantational effect, a general rejection of tonality, the use of extended techniques and explosive contrasts in tempo and dynamics all combine to give the music a highly expressive character.
Music Lieblich klagend — ein kristallnes Seufzen Aus Italiens alter Pantomime. Each instrument seems to exhibit its own character throughout the work, and we may come to believe that the distinct feel of each melodrama is the product of its combination of instrument- personalities, an effect that emphasises the expressionist aesthetic.
Although the counterpoint often evolves into dissonant harmony or, in the case last number, tonality Dunsby Schoenberg 72 , the general approach sustains the illusion of expressive individuality in each instrument and, by extension, each melodrama.

The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. The performers of the world premiere, after countless hours of individual study of their parts, completed no less than 25 ensemble rehearsals before Schönberg brought invited guests to hear the piece one week before its official premiere on 16 October in the Choralionsaal in Berlin.
Zehme insisted on performing in a Pierrot costume and standing alone on the stage. The musicians, and their conductor Schönberg, were situated behind a rather complicated screen — complicated because on the small stage it was not easy to construct something that allowed for eye contact between the vocalist and the ensemble while also hiding the latter from the view of the audience.
If Schönberg, as a musical trendsetter for the following generation of composers, should be expected to found a new tradition with his newly formulated tonal language, then he himself composed always with retrospection upon his own German tradition, in which he understood himself to stand in a line of development.
Schönberg furnished the inventory of his textual interpretation motivically, rhetorically, and compositionally with numerous allusions to music history, which can be heard in veiled quotations from works of past and recent masters.
The interpretation of the unreal figure of Pierrot evades any common practice of understanding and is largely a problem for our fantasy.
This true poetry can have, at most, an allegorical sense by and large and an indirect effect. UNESCO Contact.
The first, as illustrated by the bass clarinet in measure 4, is three half notes. Later it shows up as three quarter notes, simply a compressed version of the original.
The other rhythm is three eighth notes, usually this comes in groups of three. For example, in measure 8 the bass clarinet has the collection three times, each time as an eighth note rest followed by three eighth notes.
If you look at that measure as a whole, and any other time this pattern shows up, we see that the second group is transposed from the first by T4.
The third group of notes is transposed from the first group by T1. Thus, the entire measure is actually using , not just in each group, but within each group.
In other words, if you take the first note of each three you get , if you take the second note of each you get , and if you take the third note you also get For the first two stanzas of text, we only ever see transposed by various Tx.
Starting in the third stanza, we begin to see inversions of In measure 19, the right hand in the piano starts off with an inversion of and then goes to a transposition of This continues on for the entirety of the run in both hands of the piano.

Following a brief Schoenberg Pierrot Lunaire, the movement falls into three strophes of seven, six, and seven bars, with section breaks occurring at measures 11 and 17, articulated by a change of tempo to etwas rascher for the second strophe, and back again to the initial tempo for the third.
