Natalie Raybould on Pierrot Lunaire

clare mccaldin podcast

I work on all kinds of great projects, some of which I’m invited to join and some which I have developed myself with colleagues. However, because all the preliminary work goes on behind the scenes you won’t always get to hear about this process. So, armed with my trusty iPhone, I’ve taken to capturing conversations with friends and colleagues about all sorts of interesting projects, to share with you, the interested listener.

In this podcast I talk to soprano Natalie Raybould, who is preparing to perform Arnold Schönberg’s celebrated Pierrot Lunaire, a 20th century masterpiece she has tackled more than thirty times. Bunkered in a busy South London café during snowfall, Natalie and I discuss Pierrot, Sprechstimme, and her other current work .
