Schönberg’s Pierrot lunaire released on Stradivarius

Pierrot lunaireA new recording of Schönberg’s Pierrot lunaire and Evangelisti’s Die Schachtel has been released on the Italian label Stradivarius, featuring soprano Livia Rado and the Ensemble Prometeo under Marco Angius. In his recent review on The Guardian, Andrew Clements argues that it is hard to “think of a better, more lucid recording of Pierrot Lunaire currently available on CD”.

Stradivarius offers quite a few excerpts of the recording.

In March 1912, seven months before the première of Pierrot, Schönberg wrote in his diary: “And I am unconditionally approaching a new kind of expression – I can sense it. The sounds now are virtually becoming a bestially direct expression of sensual and intellectual feelings – almost as if everything had been directly propagated.”
