It’s the season-opening commission tomorrow from the Helsingborg Symphony in Sweden.
The arrangement is by Faradzh Karayev.
Myself, I’d prefer Gurrelieder in the solo a capella version.
There is, however, some point to this version. All of Helsingborg’s subscription concerts this season will feature aspects of the 21 poems in Arnold Schoenberg’s PierrotLunaire.
The soloist Sofia Jernberg is Swedish of Ethiopian origin.
