Innovation through Music: Pierrot Lunaire-Arnold Schoenberg

Location:
Performing Arts Center (PERF)
Cost:
$12 General admission. $8 Students/Seniors
Contact:
Jonathan Babcock, 512-560-3317
Campus Sponsor:
Stars At Night Concert Series - School of Music Dean's Showcase - College of Fine Arts & Communication

Arnold Schoenberg’s melodrama Pierrot Lunaire stands as one of the seminal works of 20th century modern art. For this work, Schoenberg developed a startlingly innovative style of vocal delivery he called Sprechstimme (speaking-voice), which requires the text to be partly spoken and partly sung. The narrator is accompanied by flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano. Using poetry by Belgian dramatist Albert Geraud, the work continues to amaze and disturb listeners over 100 years after it was first performed. School of Music faculty members Adah Jones (flute), Vanguel Tanguerov (clarinet), Lynn Ledbetter (violin), Karla Hamelin (cello), Joey Martin (piano), Myra Vassian (narrator) and Jonathan Babcock (conductor) will perform.

Area of Exploration: Creative Arts

What to Expect: A style and sound of music that is likely unknown to most students — innovation in the fine arts.
