Notes & Reviews:

This ambitious program by the Prazák Quartet and friends focuses on two key works by Arnold Schoenberg. The melodrama Pierrot Lunaire is a setting of poetry by Albert Giraud in which a singer/narrator delivers the poems in Sprechstimme style. It is paired with the Suite Op.29, one of the very first twelve-tone pieces in classical sonata form. The work is one of Schoenberg's lightest-textured and most attractive pieces.
