Pierrot Lunaire, Op.21, Dreimal sieben Gedichte aus Albert Girauds Pierrot Lunaire by Arnold Schönberg

Night upon night her famous hit sounds in the theatre, but it has been a long time since it has been raining ‘rote Rosen’. The venues get smaller and every time more and more seats remain empty. The silver sequin dress, the wig and the fan post, now covered in a layer of dust, are remnants of an era long gone. It has become next to impossible to conceal the fall of this great diva.
Her inner essence shows through in Schönbergs novel piece Pierrot Lunaire, which reflects upon sadness, death and foolish lunacy through symbolic tableaux.
