Deviant Septet

Deviant Septet, the new music ensemble which Time Out New York called "exceedingly fun," are now in their second year of residency at Duke. This season, Deviant Septet present another early-twentieth-century masterwork that calls for an unusual instrumentation: Arnold Schoenberg's astounding 1912 cycle Pierrot Lunaire (specially transcribed for the group's instrumentation). They are joined by soprano Mellissa Hughes, "a dazzling diva adept at old and new music" (TimeOut New York), who half-sings, half-speaks her way through the twenty-one irreverent poems that Schoenberg set in captivating atonality.
