Wergo's studio reihe series continues with a rather special CD release: Arnold Schoenberg's 'Pierrot lunaire' was the first long-playing record released by the newly founded label Wergo in 1962, which laid the foundation of the label's decades-long commitment to new music.
This important recording, with the soprano Helga Pilarczyk and under the direction of Pierre Boulez, has not been available until now, as Wergo releases this highlight from its early days in excellent sound quality on CD for the first time.
Pierrot lunaire was composed by Schoenberg in just a few weeks - between 12 March and 30 May 1912, to be precise. The composition was written at the initiative of the actress Albertine Zehme. Schoenberg met her shortly after he had moved to Vienna from Berlin in 1911 and dedicated the piece to her “with heartfelt friendship”.
The recordings were originally published on LP in 1963.
