Arnold Schönberg / Francis Poulenc

Pierrot lunaire / La voix humaine

In 1912 Arnold Schönberg set to music in free atonality "Three Times Seven Poems" by the Belgian Albert Giraud. His cycle Pierrot Lunaire: Rondels Bergamasques (1884) is pure French symbolism and traces the naive longings and evil nightmares of the moonstruck Pierrot. Schönberg composed a melodrama, whose rules of declamation, of not speaking but not yet singing, he described very precisely. The states of the fictitious figure Pierrot are varied by several singers and thus rearranged. The programmatic artifi cells of Giraud and Schoenberg are contrasted with the realism of expression of La voix humaine, an opera for soprano and orchestra by Francis Poulenc.
