Schönbergs Pierrot Lunaire is one of the pieces that I enjoy performing the most, and I´ve also sung it a lot of times.
The latest performance of it was in Atalante (one of my favourite theaters!) in January this year together with conductor Jerker Johansson with whom I´ve sung Pierrot on several occasions.
About 10 years ago we did an unforgettable tour of Norway with a quite challenging concert program where I first sang Boulez ”Le Marteau sans Maître” and then Pierrot Lunaire.
I was definitely younger then…
Next year I will not sing but direct Pierrot for Norrbotten NEO and the artist Sofia Jernberg. A new challenge which I’m really excited about!
