Join us for this concert showcasing two great chamber works by Arnold Schoenberg, one of the most influential composers of the twentieth century. A cycle of 21 songs based on poems by Belgian poet Albert Giraud, Pierrot Lunaire features an unusual style of vocal performance known as Sprechstimme ("speech-singing"). The First Chamber Symphony is one of Schoenberg's most brilliant creations, and considered a modern icon in the world of music stylistic evolution.
