- Pierrot Lunaire
Pierrot lunaire was commissioned by Albertine Zehme to Schoenberg, who produced an adaptation of 21 poems by Albert Giraud in only a few weeks. This simple « étude » became the symbolic work of the composer and created an absolute musical earthquake on its first performance in 1912.
The virtuosity and the inventiveness of the music is completed by the Sprechgesang, a spoken-sung voice. Marion Tassou, a young soprano
, as passionate about ancient music as she is about contemporary repertoire, will explore the incredible expressiveness of this technique.
Jean-François Heisser will join her in her performance. A soloist, a chamber musician, but also a conductor and a music teacher, the pianist will perform with the complicity of violonist Pierre Fouchenneret and cellist Victor Julien-Laferrière, both rising stars of classical music. A cross-generational encounter born from the « Belle Saison »'s programme.
