Pierrot Lunaire – the movie [Blu-ray video] Georgine Resick
This Blu-ray Video disc contains a dramatic performance and interpretation of Arnold Schoenberg’s 1912 masterpiece, PIERROT LUNAIRE.

The ensemble is a ”Pierrot” ensemble of 5 instrumentalists and 1 soprano vocalist, who sings in sprechstimme style. This new music video version is highly dramatic, with commedia del’arte costume, and while the interpretation does not conform to the composer’s directives, it is a PIERROT LUNAIRE for the 21st century.
