English composer Roger Marsh has taken the cycle of poems known as "Pierrot Lunaire" - originally set by Arnold Schoenberg in a controversial, landmark work in the early 20th century - and created a new, extended set of songs based on these fevered, surreal poems. On this New Sounds program, listen to Marsh's setting, featuring The Hilliard Ensemble, Red Byrd, Juice, and other performers.
