KAMMER Ensemble by Andrew Ford

What's a 97-year-old piece doing on a program promoted by the New Music Network? In the case of Arnold Schoenberg's grand-guignol cabaret Pierrot lunaire, there are plenty of reasons. The piece is a landmark in post-Romantic music – a kind of early modernist shibboleth. It contains the first important use of sprechstimme (a vocal style somewhere between speech and song), it paved the way for modern music theatre, and it brought pastiche, parody and the blackest of humour firmly into the domain of serious concert music. More prosaically, though no less importantly, it established the mixed ensemble (winds, strings and piano) as a 20th-century-music staple.
