Roger Marsh: Albert Giraud's 'Pierrot Lunaire'. NMC D127
Roger Marsh, long fascinated by the poems which Schoenberg set for his Pierrot Lunaire, has completed a setting of Albert Giraud's brilliant and allusive original texts, ignored by Schoenberg commentators over the years. Marsh's settings use both the original French and a new English translation specially commissioned from Kay Bourlier - sometimes simultaneously - and feature solo voice, choirs, a human beatbox and a narrator in the role of the poet himself.

This recording, supervised by the composer, features early-music stars The Hilliard Ensemble and Red Byrd, together with the exciting new vocal trio Juice and the Ebor Singers; also on this disc is the vocalist Linda Hirst, whose work has ranged from early music with John Eliot Gardiner to contemporary performance with Electric Phoenix.

'The sequence is wonderfully varied Perspectives constantly change; it's diverting and surprising, worlds away from Schoenberg's overpowering work yet still mysteriously close to the essence of Giraud's unique imagination.' The Guardian

'The work is supremely approachable, with expressive, often simple harmonies offset by catchy rhythms, touching on popular styles in ways which echo Messiaen and Berio.' Gramophone

"The work is supremely approachable, with expressive, often simple harmonies offset by catchy rhythms, touching on popular styles in ways which echo Messiaen and Berio."
