„Pierrot Lunaire“ is a cycle of poems by Albert Giraud. Arnold Schönberg selected 21 of these poems and – using Otto Erich Hartleben‘s free German translation – arranged them into a musical melodrama for a chamber music ensemble and speaking voice. This piece of music, atonal but not yet notated in the twelve-tone technique, acquires a unique attraction through the combination – sometimes confrontation – with the shadow images. In this way the visualisation concept opens up new perspectives and new worlds of experience.
