Inspired by a poem of Richard Dehmel, Verklrte Nacht is a tone poem for string sextet. Pierrot Lunaire is a musical setting for speaker and chamber ensemble of 21 poems by Albert Giraud, incorporating Schoenbergs revolutionary theory of atonality and singing-speech delivery called Sprechstimme. Authoritative editions.

Do not confuse this with a piano rendering; it is a full orchestral score. In addition to its obvious uses for study, this score is also an indispensable associate for anyone listening to record sets or broadcasts. In no other manner can the listener appreciate the full orchestral richness of these works.
