Berlin's Reinhold Friedl is a practitioner of the inside-piano technique and founder and director of the Zeitkratzer and Piano-Inside-Out ensembles. His piece, Schönberg Pierrot Lunaire -- Cheap Imitation is exactly what the title says: an endless funny parody of Schönberg's Pierrot Lunaire, a composition often taken far too seriously. At the same time, it is a compositional condensation of Schönberg's techniques, conducted in a genius way by trumpet player Franz Hautzinger from Vienna, a longtime-member of Zeitkratzer; sung by the soprano Marcus Weiser, who has succeeded already in Berlin as a singer under the name of Mark Markowitsch. Just fun, short and concentrated, as it should be connected to the second Vienna school. Commissioned by Wiener Festwochen, premiered at Konzerthaus Vienna. Recorded live at Donaufestival Krems, Austria, April 24, 2006.
