Before Pierrot there was the mighty Kammersymphonie. Despite being a self-confessed ‘reluctant revolutionary’, it seems Schoenberg could not help but smash the pre-conceived notions of music (including his own) with every new piece he wrote. The frenetic hyperactivity of his early masterwork has 21st century parallels in the exotic pointillism of Mantovani’s The Age of Nothing and the exhilaration of Loevendie’s Barn Dance.
