“Pierrot Lumière” - A Multimedia Sound Performance by Mam.Manufaktur Für Aktuelle @ HCMC Conservatory of Music

A Performance by MAM.manufaktur für aktuelle musik

On October 16, 1912, “Pierrot Lunaire” by Arnold Schönberg - a cycle of poems performed by a soprano and an instrumental ensemble, was premiered at the Berlin Choralion-Saal. This melodrama consists of 21 selected poems from Otto Erich Hartleben’s German translation of Albert Giraud’s cycle of 50 French poems of the same name. It has been one of Schönberg’s most controversial works, as it marked his first step in exploration of atonality and especially for the first time in use of Sprechstimme.

On February 19, 2019, MAM. manufaktur für aktuelle musik will bring the contemporary intepretation of “Pierrot Lunaire” to the audience in Ho-Chi-Minh City by their evening concert “Pierrot Lumière”, a captivating multimedia performance that combines an excellent musical interpretation with an immersive video installation on the gauze screen. In their rich performative stage the musicians follow the Pierrot through a network of different virtual spaces: uninhabited nature and urbanity, transit zones, open spaces and narrow alleys let the sceneries of the original story come to life.

Goethe-Institut presents MAM.manufaktur für aktuelle musik within the series Anders Hören / Listening differently that highlights and explores contemporary ways to present and promote classical music.
