Wigmore Hall, London – 5 October 2019 – 1pm
Inside the Score: Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire
The Alban Berg Ensemble Wien and soprano Magdalena Anna Hofmann join writer and broadcaster Gavin Plumley to explore Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire. This visually and musically illustrated lecture-recital looks in depth at the unique fusion of cabaret, song cycle and chamber music in the composer’s 1912 masterpiece. As well as breadth, Schoenberg achieved marked concision in these 21 settings of Albert Giraud’s poems about a sad, sadistic clown. With the help of projections and musical examples from the stage, this event looks beyond the work’s nightmarish atmosphere to reveal its motifs and methods.
