Pierrot Cruel

2014

 


Pierrot Cruel

for mezzo, flute, bass clarinet Bb, cello and piano (2014)

 
 
Commissioned by the Ars Musica Festival 2014 as an echo of the "Pierrot Lunaire" of Schoenberg. This Pierrot Cruel dislocates the poem and tries to update the "Sprechgesang" by integrating some vocal ressources of our time, particularely by making some references to the esthetic of Rap Music, a good way to express the violence of the text.
