AGP175 - Arnold #Schoenberg (1874-1951) | Pierrot Lunaire (1912), sur #Ubuweb
The Avant Garde Project celebrates its dodransbicentennial (quartoseptcentennial?) with the only out-of-print recording of Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire that I could find in my stacks. It is sung/recited by Mary Thomas with The Fires of London, and was released on LP on Unicorn Records RHS 319 in 1973. Pierrot Lunaire had a special place in the repertoire of The Fires of London in that they were originally named The Pierrot Players when they formed in 1967. The LP also includes a recording of Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony in an arrangement by Anton Webern for the same instrumentation that is used for Pierrot Lunaire. (...)

An avantgarde project favors experimental aesthetics; that is, anything “out of the box”. That basically defines the mission of this site: encourage our readers to wake up from the dream that has kept them bound to zombie-hood and explore areas outside the conventions. Originality is what sets this world into motion. That’s why we avantgardeproject.org. Here you’ll find a guide that will allow you to explore the unexplored, to start hearing the voices of those artists that have refused tradition and led the way for others.
