Pierrot’s Successors

Syzygy presents a geographical survey of just how far Pierrot’s reach has extended. From the explicit references of England’s Helen Grime, to the confronting edginess of Holland’s Jacob ter Veldhuis, and finishing with our own Roger Smalley, there is barely a composer alive who doesn’t feel the influence of Schoenberg’s masterpiece in some way.
