Patricia Kopatchinskaja talks about Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire (5 min.)
Patricia Kopatchinskaja is not only an outstanding violinist, but also as a narrator is she the ideal person to perform great works of the repertoire. She proved that in the spring of 2019, when she took on the role of the extraordinarily demanding “Sprechstimme” in Arnold Schoenberg’s visionary and enigmatic cycle Pierrot Lunaire. In this video, the artist tells of what inspired her enthusiasm for this project and what multifaceted facets are to be found in Schoenberg’s work. In addition, this short film offers exciting insights into the rehearsals themselves.
