The Proteus Ensemble, joined by soprano Hai-Ting Chinn, performs Schoenberg's "Pierrot Lunaire" and other chamber music classics. Schoenberg's masterpiece of symbolism and surrealism is rarely performed owing to its challenges, but it is a specialty of these young, very talented musicians, and offers our audience the chance to become better acquainted with a seminal 20th century masterpiece.
