 Presto Music Podcast, Episode 17 Bonus: Pierrot Lunaire with Patricia Kopatchinskaja

Patricia Kopachinskaa This week in a special bonus episode of the Presto Music Podcast, Patricia Kopatchinskaja took time out from her busy schedule to record answers to some questions I had about her new Alpha recording of Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire, which finds the acclaimed violinist singing, or rather Sprechstimming, the titular role. Patricia tells us why the piece holds such an important place in her heart, and how she approaches this demanding modernist statement.
