  • About This Album

    Composed in a fit of productivity in May 1912, Pierrot Lunaire is the last piece Schoenberg wrote before his years-long silence and the development of his now infamous 12-tone system. This album features the groundbreaking piece, along with The Book of the Hanging Gardens, the composer’s take on Lieder, both performed by Jan DeGaetani.
