Notes

"The place of Arnold Schönberg's 1912 Pierrot lunaire, op. 21 in the canon of modernist artworks has never been at risk. Even after some eighty-five [now 104] years, this music is still evanescent, scintillating, radiant. It shares these qualities with the lucent and diaphanous gestures of the wordless Pierrot, the bizarre and alienated Mime with moon-like visage and flowing white costume." -- "Pierrot's Cave" in "Schönberg and Words"
