Quote from: Luke on June 10, 2023, 03:02:52 AMTiny correction, it closes with octave Cs, therefore not major, nor minor, just pure C (to use a triad would be too much given the preceding dodecaphony). But the general point is totally valid.

Quote"...(Allen) Shawn presents, by contrast, a personal, nonanalytical, nonscholarly, but still learned appreciation of the man and his music. He discusses each of Schoenberg's works in chronological order, always within the larger context of his life and times. We learn of Schoenberg's numerological superstitions, embrace of Judaism and Jewish causes, complex relationship with Stravinsky, and often quaint domestic pursuits, such as carving his children's sandwiches into the shapes of musical instruments. Intended for the lay reader, the book is written in engagingly direct prose, and the few musical examples presented are not overlaid with obfuscating technical analyses.

Quote from: Cato on September 15, 2023, 01:48:19 PMThanks for the link!One of the comments is: "I can only listen for 3-5 minutes! This music is too intense and powerful for me!"It reminds me of a student who sat back and breathed out heavily, after seeing a videotape of Jessye Norman in Erwartung in our German IV class.When I asked what was wrong, he said: "That music! It's just so intense!"
Quote from: brewski on September 13, 2023, 11:05:43 AMJust uploaded today, an intriguing new version of Pierrot lunaire from the Hard Rain Soloistensemble in Belfast, Ireland, with conductor Sinead Hayes, and mezzo-soprano Sarah Richmond.-Bruce
Quote from: Lisztianwagner on September 16, 2023, 02:53:05 AMThank you very much for sharing this video, I watched it, it's a ravishing performance, so thrilling! I didn't know the mezzo-soprano before, but she sounds excellent, she beautifully stands out the contrasts of sonorities of the vocal part of Schönberg's Pierrot Lunaire.
Quote from: Mandryka on September 16, 2023, 03:27:14 AMIt is an extraordinary piece of music, Pierrot. I really love it.

Quote from: Lisztianwagner on September 16, 2023, 05:23:45 AMAbsoluty agree, an astounding masterpiece.I'm sorry it doesn't allow me to open the link, which performance is that?
Quote from: Mandryka on September 16, 2023, 05:49:36 AMYes, it warns you not to open the link, but it was fine for me and I spoke to the owner, Marc Trischler, at length, and can vouch for him. He was the pianist on the recording. If you PM me I'll let you have his email address. He said to me: "We are hoping to make this widely available via streaming in the future but the complications from publishing side are substantial. "This is the recording - I got it partly because I really like Sarah Maria Sun's voice, and partly because I wanted to hear the other Pierrot related material on the CD - Eisler, Schöllhorn. Put it like this: I play it often! https://www.amazon.de/Tracking-Pierrot-Dvd-Sarah-Maria/dp/B00BPUSHXQhttp://www.sa-cd.net/showtitle/9385Here's the blurb for the people too timid to open testklang! I don't have the films, though I expect Marc would let me have them if I asked. Tracking PierrotOn October 16, 1912 Arnold Schönberg ́s Pierrot Lunaire was premiered in Berlin.
