Marsh: Pierrot Lunaire / Hilliard Ensemble, Gameson, et al

Notes & Reviews:

Composer Roger Marsh, long fascinated by the poems which Arnold Schoenberg set for his Pierrot Lunaire, has completed a setting of Albert Giraud's brilliant and allusive original texts - ignored by Schoenberg commentators over the years. Marsh's settings use both the original French and a new English translation specially commissioned from Kay Bourlier - sometimes simultaneously - and feature solo voice, choirs, a human beat box and a narrator in the role of the poet himself. This recording, supervised by the composer, features early music stars The Hilliard Ensemble and Red Byrd, together with the exciting new vocal trio Juice and the Ebor Singers.
