Pierrot Lunaire from Arnold Schoenberg, the scandalous 'Red Mass' with its bloody host, stems from a musical art in which Viennese cabaret, Neapolitan and oriental antecedents and German Jewish humour blend with stable, clearly audible 'Sprechgesand' (speech-song) in a musical framework that serves as stage director and means of dramatic expression. It simultaneously proposes a literal text of immediate impact and its humorous and even ironic antithesis. Same outline with the "Suite Op.29", which is serial but with jazzy counterpoint!
