Anna Margarethe Prohaska
Introduction and Variations on "Trockne Blumen" ("Dry Flowers") in E Minor D 802 for Flute and Piano
Fourteen Ways to Describe Rain Op. 70
Pierrot lunaire Op. 21
Arnold Schoenberg’s 1912 masterpiece Pierrot lunaire is a defining landmark of modernism. Legendary conductor Zubin Mehta leads the Boulez Ensemble, with Daniel Barenboim at the piano and soprano Anna Prohaska as the vocal soloist. The program also includes Hanns Eisler’s Vierzehn Arten, den Regen zu beschreiben—based on a 1929 film score and written for the same instruments as Schoenberg’s work, minus the voice—and Franz Schubert’s variations on a song from his own cycle Die schöne Müllerin.
