Debussy: Pélleas et Melisande
I was surprised at some of his choices, especially LA FANCIULLA:
"... Jalowetz conducted recently Puccini´s LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST. A score of absolutely original sound. Gorgeous. Every bar surprising. Very special sounds. An not a trace of Kitsch! [...] I must say I loved it. [...] Am I going nuts?"
(Letter to Arnold Schönberg, March 27th, 1918)
I´d like to know Schönberg´s answer!
(By the way, I´ve heard Puccini quite admired PIERROT LUNAIRE and some people even say there is a bit of Schönberg in TURANDOT)
